MY LAST POST….This is it: my final post for the Washington Monthly. Starting tomorrow I’ll be blogging at Mother Jones. Here’s the URL to bookmark:

Also starting tomorrow, this blog will be taken over by Steve Benen of the Carpetbagger Report and Hilzoy of Obsidian Wings. They’re two of the best in the business, so Political Animal will be in good hands. I wish them the best of luck and I hope they have as good a time here as I’ve had over the past four years.

And speaking of that, many, many, many thanks to everyone who’s written to wish me luck on my move today: Paul, Zack, Christina, Tom, and Jon on the blog, as well as the many others who have written via email and comments. I appreciate it more than I can say. This has been the best blogging home I could have hoped for, and I’m going to miss it.

And with that, I’m off. I’ll see you all (I hope) at Mother Jones tomorrow. Maybe by the time I wake up we’ll even know who our Democratic vice presidential candidate is going to be. Wouldn’t that be a nice way to end the week?
