Thank You and Happy New Year!

The best thing we can say about 2020 is that it’s finally over.

Personally, I’m not interested in retrospectives about 2020. The best that can be said is that it’s finally over, offering the opportunity to look forward to the possibility of something better in 2021.

But when I think about the past 12 months, I am reminded that four years ago Hillary Clinton told us that we’re “stronger together.” Never has that been more true than today, even if social distancing during a pandemic means that we’ve come together virtually.

That is why I am so grateful for the community that has developed here at the Washington Monthly. We’ve gotten through 2020 together and are ready to “build back better” in 2021. So as is my custom, this song goes out to all of you who have supported us over this difficult year. Thank you and Happy New Year!
