John Harris of Politico and Mark Halperin, TIME’s Senior Political Analyst, are giving a session on political reporting and the 2008 elections.

Mark Halperin went to Harvard, but didn’t work for The Crimson. Still became a journalist though.

From Jackie Calmes:

“Obama’s a prickly guy and the press all know that and I think it’s reflected in his coverage some.”

And on Clinton.

In ‘93 and ‘94 when her healthcare plan she began to take all criticism of it personally, and ever since then has never really recovered from that.
