Political Animals, How Hardcore Are You?

If there’s any moment of the year when politics shouldn’t intrude, it’s Christmas morning. It’s a special time for being with family, exchanging gifts, and doting on children. Even the most politically-obsessed of us should want to put the campaign aside and give our cable show viewing a rest. Right?

Pish posh! If you’re really hardcore, you know there’s no such thing as taking a break from politics. You’ll want to have some political analysis on the TV while you’re opening your presents! And now you can! Just tune into C-SPAN’s Washington Journal Christmas morning from 7:45 AM to 8:30 AM ET to see host Pedro Echevarria and me talk about campaign rhetoric, media coverage, and the road ahead for 2016.
