A national political correspondent reporting the political scene for The Washington Post, David S. Broder writes a twice-weekly column that covers an even broader aspect of American political life. Syndicated by The Washington Post Writers Group, the column is carried by more than 300 newspapers across the globe. Broder was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in May 1973 for distinguished commentary. Broder has covered every national campaign and convention since 1960, traveling up to 100,000 miles a year to interview voters and report on the candidates. Broder is a regular commentator on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” and makes regular appearances on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and “Washington Week in Review.” He is author or co-author of seven books on national politics, including The Party’s Over and Democracy Derailed: initiative campaigns and the power of money.
