I am John Dickerson author of Whistlestop. Ask me Anything!
Hello! I’m John Dickerson, the host of Face the Nation and author of the new book Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories from Presidential Campaign History. The book was inspired by my podcast of the same name. In addition to the familiar tales, Whistlestop also remembers the forgotten stories about the bruising and reckless campaigns of the nineteenth century when the combatants believed the consequences included the fate of the republic itself. I’m also a co-host of the Slate Political Gabfest and Political Director for CBS News. Ask me anything!

Thanks everyone. I've got to move on for now. I really enjoy these though and I hope I can do another one even when I don't have a book that's just come out. It reminds me what people care about and forces me to think through the things I believe which is always helpful. Well, it's more than that. It's crucial.
