A New Day

I’m delighted to be helping out with TPMDC and TPM’s coverage of the new administration. I’ve been a fan of Josh Marshall and the site for a long time and it’s nice to be a part of it. I continue to write for Conde Nast Portfolio, where I’m a contributing editor, as well as its website, and other publications. But I’ll be doing a lot here, trying to make sense of this new era and what it means. I covered the Clinton and George W. Bush presidencies for mainstream media outlets like Time and Newsweek, but I have deep roots in publications like this, having started my journalism career at The Washington Monthly and later having written the “White House Watch” column for The New Republic. Like so many people I’m deeply interested in two questions: How will Barack Obama solidify his political power and pass his agenda and will it work to address both the financial crisis and the country’s longer-term problems. I don’t know what the answers are but hopefully in a dialogue with you, the readers of TPM and its off shoots, and through reporting and thinking hard we’ll begin to get them. It’s good to be with you.
