Victoria Nuland’s role as spokesperson for the State Department, deemed strange by some who remember her tenure as principal deputy national security adviser to then Vice President Dick Cheney, has become stranger yet.

Her husband, Robert Kagan, has joined Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign as a foreign policy adviser.

Kagan, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, also advised the McCain campaign in 2008.

Nuland is a career foreign service officer who has held State posts during Republican and Democratic administrations. She was U.S. ambassador to NATO in the George W. Bush administration and chief of staff to Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott in Bill Clinton’s administration.

Both Kagan and Nuland are the offspring of prominent academics. Kagan’s father, Donald Kagan, is a history professor at Yale.

Nuland’s father, Sherwin Nuland, is a professor of surgery at the Yale School of Medicine.
