Politico‘s Glenn Thrush gave her a thumbs up. “She’s terrific — congrats!!”

Mark Mellman, who runs a Democratic polling firm, remarked, “Congrats.”

Eilperin, who has worked for WaPo since 1998 and has covered Capitol Hill and the environment, was all humble pie.

“Granted @peterbakernyt still reigns as nicest WH bureau chief, I can only aspire to give him a run for his money,” she wrote, referring to NYT Chief White House correspondent Peter Baker.
