He began his career at The Hill, a weekly newspaper (and website) covering Congress.

He has appeared as an analyst on each of the major broadcast networks, all of the major cable television news networks, "News Hour with Jim Lehrer" on PBS, the BBC and National Public Radio. He also is a regular panelist on "Washington Week with Gwen Ifill" on PBS.
