John Harwood Books

Pennsylvania Avenue:

Award-winning journalists John Harwood and Gerald F. Seib demonstrate how the current Washington power structure actually functions in Pennsylvania Avenue. The authors illuminate what it takes to succeed in the high-stakes game of governing and offer insights and examples for how President Obama might actually effect change in Washington. They do this through their unmatched access to capital insiders and their profound understanding of the unwritten rules of the political road.

Harwood and Seib explore the major political shifts that have changed the relationship between Americans and their government through the stories of party strategists, moneymen, policymakers, fixers, socialites, lobbyists, spinners, and deal-makers, many of whom now hold prominent positions in the Obama administration. They highlight both established D.C. power brokers and the burgeoning new generation who have moved Capitol Hill into a new era. Pennsylvania Avenue, which includes a riveting new Foreword on how Barack Obama might succeed, demonstrates how our government actually works and identifies the insiders who actually carry out the decisions.

John Harwood Wikileaks

When the personal email account of political strategist John Podesta, who was working on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign at the time, was compromised and its contents were made public by the website WikiLeaks in October and November 2016, Harwood came under fire.

John Harwood Email

Several of the emails from Harwood, according to some detractors, showed an unprofessional level of intimacy or coordination between the two. They contained an email from John Podesta dated May 2015 in which he forewarned Podesta that the Clinton campaign might face “real trouble” from then-candidate Ben Carson.

John Harwood Interview

CNBC’s John Harwood On Dr. Ben Carson And Interviews

Published: TUE, MAY 12, 2015

Interviewer: First of all, how difficult was it for you to get a sit-down setup with Dr. Carson?

John Harwood: It wasn’t, it didn’t seem especially difficult. You know, he was preparing to announce his campaign, and this is somebody who has got a substantial grassroots following, but I think he also wants to reach more of what you might call establishment media audiences, and certainly the CNBC audience. It’s business and financial, predominantly, and I think that that’s a group that any presidential candidate, looking at the money you have to raise, is interested in reaching.

Interviewer: Now I was on the Meet the Press panel the Sunday that, he hadn’t announced, yet. It wasn’t last week, it was a couple of months ago with Chuck doing the lead interview with him. And he was very well-prepared, at the same time cautious and slow in responding to some questions – deliberate, not slow, but deliberate. Did you find him to be the same way?

John Harwood: Definitely. Remember, this guy is new to this arena, and as exceptionally gifted as he is in medicine, this is a tough transition that he’s making, and I think he was deliberate in that, and also combative in some ways against what he thinks is, are people in the media who are trying to burn him.

Interviewer: And interestingly, he puts me in that category, I guess.

John Harwood: I, honestly, I was stunned by that, because I listened to your interview as part of my homework before going up to talk to him. And I, like you, I don’t do gotcha interviews. And you prefaced your questions to him in that way, and I thought were not trying to trip him up. But when I raised the interview with him, your interview, he said, oh, he was giving me a pop quiz, and he was so gleeful when I messed it up. I don’t think any fair-minded person could actually listen to the tape of your interview and reach that conclusion, but he did.
