Candy Crowley: CNN goes for the best for “State of the Union”

Candycrowleysou

Good news this morning about Candy Crowley’s new posting as anchor of CNN’s 9 a.m. political gabfest “State of the Union.”

Crowley’s the best — a seasoned pro whose covered all the major presidential candidates since the 1980s. She’s covered every presidential nominating convention since the Carter era but one, according to her official bio. (I wonder which one she missed?)

In an era of cutbacks and infotainment, Crowley’s an example of an increasingly rare commodity in journalism — a pro with loads of experience. Kind of important for a Washington correspondent.

Rock on, Ms. Crowley. Give ’em hell and keep the bums honest.

— Cynthia Littleton
