(Steve Clemons listening to Gen. Wesley Clark at Yearly Kos 2007 in Chicago)
Wow. I was speaking to some students of Shelly Williams of the Osgood Center at Johns Hopkins/SAIS this morning and just recalled that it was the fourth birthday of this blog.
I’m three days late, but wow — it’s been an incredible four years. Josh Marshall is the one who made this all happen for me — and I thank him again for nudging me hard to do it. TWN and Talking Points Memo are in discussions about a whole new set of collaborations. More on that down the road.
But thanks to all of you who read, who comment, who constructively point out the lapses in my thinking, and who have been among the many distinguished guest bloggers and semi-permanent bloggers — particulalry Scott Paul, Sameer Lalwani, Jennifer Buntman (when’s her next post damn it!?), Andrew Lebovich, Patrick Doherty and others.
I think I’m going to treat myself to a venti coffee to celebrate. Wow. . .four years and three days.
Seriously, thanks to everyone.
