Greetings Animals

Hello all,

I’m thrilled to be joining the Political Animal blogging rotation this weekend. About me: I’m a DC-based writer who contributed the piece “The Clintonites Beef with Obama” for the latest issue of the Monthly, and was until recently a Reporter-Researcher with The New Republic. Please use the comments section freely–I’m looking forward to hearing from you all.
