Political-Media Couples

Where the media and political elite meet in marriage. Some are here because, though technically not media people, they’re frequently commentators on cable news shows:

Just getting started.

Howard Kurtz, Washington Post media critic, married to Sheri Annis, ex-spokesman for Gov. Schwartzenegger

Alan Greenspan, ex-Fed chairman and Andrea Mitchell, NBC correspondent

Joseph DiGenova, ex-prosecutor and Victoria Toensing, Republican strategist

Ken Pollack, Brookings Institution and Andrea Koppel, CNN

Ron Brownstein, LA Times political correspondent and Eileen McMenamin, political director, Sen. John McCain

Matthew Cooper, Portfolio magazine (formerly of Time magazine) and Mandy Grunwald, Democratic strategist

Russ Schriefer, Romney strategist and Nina Easton, Fortune magazine

Jim O’Beirne, Defense Department and Kate O’Beirne, National Review

David Gregory, NBC White House correspondent and Beth Wilkinson, Fannie Mae general counsel

A power couple list.

A few others of interest:
Lynne and Dick Cheney
Bill and Hilary Clinton
Mitch McConnell, Senate minority leader, and Elaine Chao, secretary of labor
