David Paul Kuhn is a writer and political analyst living in New York City. He is the author of the political novel What Makes It Worthy—an “absorbing novel” that is “all too real” (political strategist James Carville), “captivating” (novelist Matthew Thomas), “a genuinely tender love story” and “insightful” (Kirkus Reviews), “a heartfelt page-turner” that “exposes the forces threatening our media and our politics” (Governor Jennifer Granholm).
Kuhn has served as the chief political writer for CBSnews.com, a senior political writer for Politico as well as chief political correspondent at RealClearPolitics. He has also written for The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, The Washington Post Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, among other publications, and regularly appears on networks ranging from BBC to Fox News. As the Macmillan Speakers Bureau described him, “David Paul Kuhn is an expert analyst of presidential and gender politics.” He is also the author of The Neglected Voter, which General Wes Clark called “a brilliantly insightful analysis of American politics.”
Kuhn has covered four presidential campaigns and politics from Washington to the United Nations, and has driven the width of the United States for CBS News documenting Americans’ lives and outlooks. He has reported on events from the epicenter of the collapse of the World Trade Center to North Korean backroom nuclear negotiations. Early in his career, he reported on the United States for the Tokyo-based Yomiuri Shimbun, the world’s most widely circulated newspaper.
