Job: White House correspondent for Time magazine. Education: BA in politics and journalism from Washington & Lee University. Hometown: Rossmoor, California. Now lives in Northwest DC. Hobbies: Spending time with the fantastic and inspiring kids of the Daybreak program in Lincoln Heights in Northeast DC. The kids are “the mug,” as they would say. They explained to me that it’s good to be “the mug.” Dream date: A Saturday-night worship service followed by a rooftop candlelit dinner. Deal breakers: Selfishness. Last movie you saw: I saw the Al Gore documentary and Thank You for Smoking the same day. Fair and balanced. Shortcomings: That’s an essay question.
