CBS News Celebrates Christmas

On Tuesday evening, CBS News bureau chief Chris Isham and deputy Jim McGlinchy hosted the Washington bureau’s annual Christmas party on the set of “Face the Nation.”  Smothered in ornaments, lights and a giant snowman, Bob Schieffer‘s Sunday show studio was transformed into a wintry wonderland by producer Kia Baskerville and a holiday party committee. CBS staffers were treated to massages and  festive margaritas (red and green) at the party.  A few pics below:

    If you could have any other job besides the one you have now, what would it be?

    Something flying. No airline jobs thanks. But some job that let me fly to different places with time to visit.

    If you could cover any past political story, which one would it be and why?

    The Continental Congress in Philadelphia. A congressional session with life and death issues — and few earmarks. …

    What’s your favorite political book and why

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

    What’s your favorite comfort food?

    Good Irish stew.
