Hotline Profiles Lawrence

From their Friday Feature:

    Jill Lawrence is the nat’l political corr. for USA Today. She also co-authors the paper’s “On Politics” blog. She was a columnist for the AP and a free-lance magazine and newspaper writer before joining the newspaper in July 1996. But today she’s our Friday Feature:

    What’s your most embarrassing on-the-job moment? (Or as embarrassing as you’d like to reveal?)

    One that ranks near the top was when I accidentally dropped my laptop off the top level of a camera stand. It was around midnight, the last event of the day in the last week of the Kerry campaign. That was the end of that computer.

    What’s your favorite political book and why

    “The Feminine Mystique,” by Betty Friedan. It helped unlock possibilities for half the population, and is probably the reason I am able to have a job as a political reporter.

    What is your biggest weakness (and not your job interview biggest weakness)?

    I am uncomfortable making speeches. Give me a good Q-and-A any time.

Read the rest here.
