Famous for Washington — But Ready for Santa Fe?

Paul sent me the following, found on The Drudge Report (apparently, one of those "blog" things I've been hearing about) and originally reported in Roll Call, which seems to be some sort of Washington, DC-based news publication:
VALERIE PLAME, JOE WILSON READY TO 'QUIT' WASHINGTON
Tue Oct 24 2006 08:51:47 ET

Having soaked up just about every last bit of limelight from the CIA leak scandal, former GOP-appointed Ambassador Joe Wilson is burning up the campaign trail on behalf of Democrats while apparently planning a full-time move away from Washington, D.C., ROLL CALL reports.

Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame Wilson — who was famously outed as a CIA operative by columnist Robert Novak — have told friends that they are ready to quit Washington. One source tell ROLL'S Mary Ann Akers, the Wilsons, the parents of 6-year-old twins, have “settled on” Santa Fe, N.M.

"We have entertained for a while now moving out of Washington, D.C... My wife no longer has a job in Washington, so we're no longer bound to the city," Wilson explains.
