  1. Hi John, I saw you on CBS Sunday Morning yesterday in which you talked about a concern on the worried minds of many Americans: how to plan for and conduct a free and fair election in November, one without outside interference, voter suppression, endangering the health of voters and poll workers, and a peaceful transfer of power afterward. I appreciate you trying to elevate the urgency of this issue and hope it will be a primary topic when you appear tonight on the Late Show, but I would implore you to not refer to these interferences as monkey business! These are just a few examples of the dangerous abuse of power going on right now, and attributing playful terms to them trivializes the damage they are causing. Looking forward to the interview. Thanks!

    Joe Biden needs John Dickerson for his “Toby”….speech writer and policy advisor. John’s eloquence and knowledge of history and politics would be a valuable asset!

    Just started the book and already love it! On pg 19 of the Introduction, the imagined president refers to the Buckeyes next victory and how speechwriters change the line to appeal to the next local audience. Just curious if that line is tailored to the location of the reader to appeal to them. Ex: Pennsylvania readers have a line about the Nittany Lions next victory. Not sure if that’s even technically possible but as an OSU alum that passage immediately made me like the book more!
