At the Podium

At the podium, through fun and humorous banter, the couple breathes new life into old debates. By identifying the common ground that exists on any given issue and then building on it, Avlon and Hoover show how to fight for the national interest rather than special interests, reminding us of Thomas Jefferson’s admonition – “every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle.”  Together, they offer audiences a refreshing outlook on the future and discuss how we can grow as a nation.

About John Avlon and Margaret Hoover

As on air CNN contributors,  John Avlon is a staunch Independent and Margaret Hoover is a proud Republican. Off air, they are a happily married couple. Through fun and humorous banter, the couple breathes new life into -old -timeless debates. By identifying the common ground that exists on any given issue, Avlon and Hoover share and demonstrate how to fight for the national interest rather than special interests. Together, they offer audiences a refreshing outlook on the future partisan politics and discuss the upcoming 2016 election from all sides— left, right, and center.

Avlon is Editor in Chief of The Daily Beast and the author of Independent Nation: How Centrists Can Change American Politics. The book is a rallying cry for the moderate majority of Americans who are tired of the far right and far left politics and choose instead to walk an independent path between these extremes.

Hoover is a socially liberal, fiscally conservative Republican who is modernizing the party with fresh ideas and an open mind for change. Previously a FoxNews Contributor, Hoover is a veteran of the Bush White House, has covered two presidential campaigns, and is the best-selling author of American Individualism: How A New Generation of Conservatives Can Save the Republican Party.
