Linda Douglass leaving White House
By The Post's Howard Kurtz in our 44 blog:
Linda Douglass, the network TV correspondent who became a top pitchwoman for President Obama's health care plan, is leaving the White House.
She sounds like she needs a break; her last day is April 16, and she leaves for vacation the next day.
The former ABC News reporter, who became a traveling spokeswoman for the Obama campaign, found herself in the midst of the fierce battle over health-care reform. She called her departure "bittersweet."
"After nearly 2 years of work that has been exhilarating and grueling in equal measure, I am going to step off the treadmill for awhile and rediscover the experience of dining with my husband on a regular basis," Douglass said in a statement. She said she will be "cheering with pride from the sidelines as this historic law takes effect."
