John McCain, CNN’s Jake Tapper, and NJ’s Ron Fournier

Last night at Sixth Engine, CNN and National Journal hosted “Politics on Tap,” a joint interview by CNN’s Jake Tapper and NJ’s Ron Fournier’s of Sen. John McCain preceded by a panel discussion with CNN’s Peter Hamby and Brianna Keilar and NJ’s Michelle Cottle on pressing political issues.

The former presidential hopeful covered a lot of topical ground, including the downed Malaysia Airlines flight earlier that day, immigration, Israel and Iraq.

Asked by Tapper who from the Republican Party could run against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, McCain said, “I think we have a long list of people that could defeat Hillary Clinton. I think that Chris Christie is one. Jeb Bush is another. John Kasich is another. We’ve got some very successful governors that have done very well in their states that I think once exposed to the American people could be very competitive.”

CNN and National Journal to Host ‘Politics on Tap’ with Sen. John McCain

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 15.41.52Look out BuzzFeed Brews. There’s a new beer drinking news platform in town.

CNN and National Journal are joining forces to explore the midterm elections the best way possible…with a cold one in hand.

Dubbed “Politics on Tap,” the program will feature an interview by CNN’s Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper and NJ’s Ron Fournier of Sen. John McCain followed by a panel discussion with CNN’s Peter Hamby NJ’s Michelle Cottle, and CNN’s Brianna Keilar on the growing divide in the Republican Party and how the changing face of the GOP and Congressional leadership may impact this November’s midterm elections.

Slated for next Thursday at Sixth Engine, the invite (which hasn’t gone out yet) is a steal in that a-the topic is definitely interesting and b-who doesn’t want to drink with this crowd. Only thing that could make it better is if Rep. Aaron Schock were involved.

We’ll be there, and hope to see you there, too!

See the invite – sans RSVP dets (sorry) – after the jump. Cheers! Read more

In early June, we wrote that during the first five months of 2014, traffic was up 50% compared to the same time last year.

Also significant for NJ, it added several new writers in the recent months, including Emily Schultheis, Alexia Campbell, Rachel Roubein, Zach Cohen, Nora Caplan-BrickerMichelle Cottle, Simon van Zuylen-Wood, Daniel Libit, and Ethan Epstein.

“The new magazine adds another dimension for us: We have great in-the-moment journalism and extraordinary long-form journalism too, a mix that is driving influential readers – and top-flight journalists – to National Journal,” said NJ Editor-in-Chief and President Tim Grieve in a press release.

Van Zuylen-Wood, a staff writer for Philadelphia magazine who has also worked for The New Republic and written for POLITICO MagazineEpstein of The Weekly Standard; and Libit, formerly with POLITICO, will join the magazine as contributing writers.

Washington Monthly’s Charlie Peters: This is Your Life

photo-29Washington Monthly‘s founding editor, Charlie Peters, short and slightly hunched over with a shock of white, silken Washington hair, was a man of few words Thursday afternoon at the New America Foundation as he watched a documentary about his own life.

A little like showing up for your own funeral. But his reaction didn’t require words, really. It was all in his shoulders.

Sitting in the front row of a small packed room with a screen, his shoulders shook up and down in dramatic spasms as he laughed and laughed while reporters recalled what it was like to have him as their editor.

And it wasn’t always pretty. Read more
