E.J. Dionne, Jr.

Political Commentator and Washington Post Columnist

E.J. DIONNE Jr. employs his passions for people and politics and his keen intellect to deliver reasoned analysis that is followed by a wide circle of policy-makers nationwide – on the left, right and center. In his columns as well as his appearances as a commentator for National Public Radio, ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” and NBC's "Meet the Press," Dionne demonstrates that he "knows the present with the keen sense of a beat reporter and the past with the perspective of a scholarly historian" (America Magazine, 2008).

His new book, "Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent", addresses what is tearing us apart, why there is so much brooding about American decline, and what can be done to restore the nation’s sense of confidence.

Dionne began his now twice-weekly op-ed column for The Washington Post in 1993, and he now appears in more than 100 newspapers in the United States and abroad. Before joining The Post in 1990 as a reporter covering national politics, he spent 14 years with The New York Times, reporting on state and local government, national politics, and from around the world, including stints in Paris, Rome and Beirut.

Other books include Souled Out: Reclaiming Faith & Politics After the Religious Right, Stand Up, Fight Back: Republican Toughs, Democratic Wimps, and the Politics of Revenge , and They Only Look Dead: Why Progressives Will Dominate The Next Political Era.
