I am looking for a position that will allow me to continue to cover national politics as I have been at CNN since July 2007.  I am especially interested in covering Capitol Hill and/or the White House.  I would like to focus on reporting and writing but I also have the necessary skills to be a package producer or show producer for television as well as a blog, podcast, and online video producer for an online or multimedia outlet.
