Which politician do you want to meet under the mistletoe?

PBS NewsHour’s “Politics on the Rocks” team is Meredith Garretson on the mic and Matt Ehrichs behind the camera. Matt also edited the video.

It’s holiday season in D.C. And you can’t swing a dead appropriations bill in this town without hitting an amateur pundit with an open bar tab and an opinion. So, with only a few days until Christmas, NewsHour’s “Politics on the Rocks” team returned to two of our favorite pubs — the historic Old Ebbitt Grill and Capitol Hill’s Hawk ‘n’ Dove — to get revelers’ takes on some very important political topics. For example: You’re Nancy Pelosi’s Secret Santa, what do you buy her? If you had a minute alone with Mitch McConnell, what would you tell him? And, of course, which politician do you want to meet under the mistletoe?

“Politics on the Rocks” was also on the scene on Election Night. See what thirsty Washingtonians had to say about the midterms. And keep an eye out for us in 2015.
