Her ear is to the ground outside the Washington Beltway as a social entrepreneur. Previously, she was the founder of (nonprofit for citizen activists), and has worked at The Heritage Foundation, Hillsdale College's Washington office, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the senior levels of the legislative and executive branches of government.

Her degrees are: Business Communication & Political Science from Creighton University, and J.D. from Creighton Law School (Omaha, NE).

Jonah Goldberg serves up conservative commentary with a mix of humor and erudition.

The founding editor of National Review Online, Goldberg is a columnist for the L.A. Times, a Fox News contributor and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. His first book — “Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning“ — stirred up fiery debate and was met with critical acclaim in many quarters when it was released in 2008.

Now Goldberg is out with a new book, “The Tyranny of Clichés: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas.”

In an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, Goldberg discussed his book, the hardening tactics of the left, the difference between President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton, and much more.
