I don’t know how many of you subscribe to Think Progress, a political newsletter affiliated with the Center for American Progress, but it does an extraordinary job of building a wave beneath hard-hitting political research and getting it out into the media and blogosphere.
The material that the Think Progress comes up with just blows away the competition — and Judd Legum, the editor, is one of the reasons this operation has run so well.
Word reached me today that Think Progress‘s (and John Podesta’s) loss is Hillary Clinton’s gain as Legum will be the new research director for Hillary’s campaign. I think Legum is the best in that business — so this will be one arena hard for the competitors to match.
