Memo announcing the Politico’s hire of former CBS-er Vaughn Ververs:

———- Forwarded message ———-
From: Bill Nichols
Subject: Welcome to an almost newcomer

In the grand POLITICO tradition, we have waited so long to
introduce a new staff member that they have already become such an
accepted part of the joint that they no longer seem new.

But anyway – please formally welcome Vaughn Ververs, who comes to us most recently from CBSNews.com, where he was Senior Political Editor. Before joining CBS News as editor of the Public Eye blog, Vaughn was editor of The Hotline, where, among other accomplishments,
he survived working with one Danielle Jones.

In his POLITICO incarnation, Vaughn will be our night Web editor on Mondays and Tuesdays and will generally work with DJ throughout the week in making the web site even cooler and smarter and faster than it already is – if that is possible. Vaughn has already made progress toward one of POLITICO’s chief goals for 2009: getting DJ to walk to lunch across Wilson Blvd without staring at her Blackberry non-stop. Pedestrians throughout the area are deeply
grateful.

Please welcome Vaughn, if belatedly, to the POLITICO gang.
