POLITICO’s Mike Allen: Must-Watch Political Rundown
Mike Allen offers audiences a nonpartisan, insider’s guide to politics. He is a “founding father” of POLITICO, one of Washington’s most influential publications, and the driving force behind its daily email tip-sheet Playbook, which is read by everyone in and around the Beltway, including the president. Vanity Fair said, “Reading [Mike Allen’s] Playbook is as close as you can come on a Washington morning to knowing everything.” His speeches are no different, and on stage he “says what we can’t say on TV.”
