I called my parents with the double dose of good news – my official title at the DNC, and the “I still can’t believe it I passed the Foreign Service Written Exam” announcement. Only Mom was there; Dad was out building houses. I received the following email from him tonight:

Madame Visibility Whip. Or maybe,
Or is there another preferred manner?
Sorry I wasn’t around to hear all your exciting news about the great day you are having. Hope the smiles have continued throughout the day.
We’ll be scanning the floor to see you in Boston. And, yes, that’s a great addition to your resume. Now, if you can help put Democrats back in control, maybe Madame Ambassador is a future possibility.
