About Steve and The Washington Note

Greetings, and welcome to my website. During the days, I serve as Senior Fellow & Director, American Strategy Program,New America Foundation and, in my spare time, serve as Director of the Japan Policy Research Institute. I’ve also been encouraged by my great friend, Joshua Micah Marshall of talkingpointsmemo.com to start my own blog. So, connected here you will soon find thewashingtonnote.com, where I will more regularly comment on public policy debates that deserve attention. Until then, enjoy the articles and other items posted here.

Yes, these websites and blogging activities are expensive – and some of you have asked if you can donate. The answer, finally, is SURE. I have posted a link below to handle donations – and you can always purchase your Amazon books through the link below (any books or other items) and Amazon will make a donation to the site.


All the best,

Steve Clemons
