Cokie Roberts

“In my work here as a journalist, I try to communicate the basics: What is going on and why. But I also try to communicate that there is, in this mess, a certain majesty that we should celebrate.”

Political commentator for NPR and for ABC News, Cokie Roberts grew up in a political family. With two parents in the US Congress—her father rising to House majority leader and her mother serving for nine terms—political analysis comes naturally to the journalist and author.
