My Perspective

I started writing here at Washington Monthly a little over a year ago. It has been a truly amazing experience for me – especially because I’ve learned something new every single day.

One of the things my predecessor Ed Kilgore did at this time of year was to publish lists of his favorite posts from the previous year. Perhaps at some point I’ll be able to do that. But right now it is too difficult for me to make those kinds of judgements.

What I can do, however, is point to a few that capture my perspective as a political writer. In case you haven’t figured that out yet, you might want to read these:

Understanding the Threat of a Confederate Insurgency

A Walk Down Memory Lane on Republican Obstruction

President Obama on Power and Change

A Feminist Foreign Policy

What it Means to be a Pragmatic Progressive

What I take from that list is that I fit in pretty well with the overall mission of the Washington Monthly. But I also bring some of my own unique perspective as well. If you think that’s a good thing, I hope you’ll join us by clicking on the banner below to make a financial contribution. We can’t do this without you!
