Our favorite Sr. Political Correspondent is finally getting some rest, and Candy Crowley is also getting some much deserved attention. Check out this story from the Boston Herald.
"The 2008 campaign bus has finally careened to a rest stop in the wild ride for reporters covering the Obama-Clinton fight to the finish, and the press – like never before – is pooped.
"Taking a breather after one of the longest primary seasons in modern history, CNN senior political correspondent Candy Crowley says her Washington, D.C., area home looks like an abandoned post office.
"She’s been flying around the country, traveling to nearly every state over the past 17 months.
"'It was tremendously grueling,' said Crowley, who would look at Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-New York) and Barack Obama (D-Illinois) at times and think, 'How can you do this?'
"But the adrenaline kept her moving. 'It was just exciting,' Crowley said. 'It wasn’t just that it was a close race. It was that no matter what happened it was a historic race.'
"While on the road, the sleep-deprived Crowley would appear on Anderson Cooper at 10 p.m., and rise and shine for early-morning live shots."

Candy is one of the few outstanding journalist. She reports news without bias and that is refreshing. Have a great break Candy and thanks for all your great reporting.
Candy glad you are resting but you should stay home for the rest of the General Election- we don’t need bias commentary.
Candy Crowley is an awesome journalist!!
one of the most fair and talented on the trail
Enjoy your time off Candy
You SO deserve it..big time.... and I look forward to your continuing reports when you come back
Candy deserves the rest after being on during the primary season at all times of the day and night. She did great reporting and I'm glad she is getting recognized for it. She kept her finger on the pulse of the primary races and kept her good humor at the same time – difficult at times I'm sure.
If she didn't get those roses 360 promised she should get them now – at double the amount. She did a fantastic job for CNN and represented the best of reporting.
Always look forward to your perspective. Have a good rest. It is well deserved! Looking forward to you continued commentary down to general election.
Hi Candy, I love your work ethic. Please enjoy the break. You certainly deserve it! It won't be long then we'll have the conventions, so please rest a lot. I always enjoy your commentaries and humor. I can't wait to see you again.
All the best,
you are simply the best. And your funny too. Congratulations.
Candy, you are the best, and you certainly deserve a vacation.
Hey, did you get your flowers from Anderson?
I agree with guys....... you are doing great! you deserve a break for your rest, I might give you some flower! Thanks for being special reporter! I am fan of you........ you are so amazing person I saw you on tv whole show including AC360! Hope you enjoy your vacation or break.....
Thanks for information from Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Barrack Obama. See you soon!
I am so glad you are getting some much deserved rest.
Look into my eyes. . . you are getting very sleepy~
Hmm, Big Spring,TX! Well, congratulation and ya'll come on down!
Have a great vacation Candy, get a massage, drink some champange, and do whatever you want! ;-)
Get some well deserved rest. If you think the democrat primaries
were rough the campaign from here on will be will be brutal. Go Obama!
Oh on a side note, CNN I appreciated the diversity you brought this election season. I know it was because of Obama and Clinton. But regardless off the outcome in November, keep this diversity of reporters and correspondents up. It would be a shame to revert back to old habits.
I think Candy deserves some down time, and deserves those flowers that ac360 promised! Hope she got a big bouquet of white, peaceful roses. When you must reside in a battleground of a political campaign, you're lucky to emerge without a concussion from all the jabs...Well done Candy.

Good for Candy. Glad she finally gets some rest. She definitely did an outstanding job covering the primaries and I am looking forward to her coming back for the general election.
You deserve a break; sometimesI think you work harder than the candidates:)
