Richard Wolffe

  • Political Analyst
  • Former Reporter of World-Class Wit and Acumen
  • Politics and Current Events Speaker

From what’s happening in Washington and on Wall Street to what’s going on in Westminster and the West Bank, Richard Wolffe has covered it all. The former senior White House correspondent and diplomatic reporter for Newsweek and business reporter for The Financial Times, Wolffe lends his thoughtful analysis to the political, economic and social headlines of our times including a look at Congress and the Obama Administration. With an ironic, dry sense of humor, Wolffe cuts to the core of domestic and international politics and gives the historical perspectives and political psychology behind today’s news. The best-selling author of Renegade: The Making of a President (2009), Wolffe spent almost two years traveling with the Obama campaign, an unmatched experience that lends itself to a powerful analysis of the news generated by the 44th president of the United States. Wolffe is uniquely placed to interpret President Obama's character and politics: he interviewed the candidate more than a dozen times for his book, obtained the first print interview with the new president in the Oval Office and even played basketball with him several times. In his book, REVIVAL: The Struggle for Survival Inside the White House (2010), Wolffe painted a portrait of the White House at work under exceptional strain across a sweeping set of challenges. In his upcoming ebook, The Message: The Reselling of President Obama (September 2013), Wolffe draws upon his insider access to Barack Obama’s communications team, as they struggle to redefine a presidency in a tumultuous election year. Wolffe is Executive Editor of MSNBC.com and appears regularly on Hardball with Chris Matthews, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell as well as NBC’s TODAY and Meet the Press.
