John Avlon and Margaret Hoover      

Married Political Commentators with Differing Political Views

On air, John Avlon is a staunch Independent and Margaret Hoover is a proud Republican. Off air, they are a happily married couple. Through fun and humorous banter, the couple breathes new life into old debates.

By identifying the common ground that exists on any given issue, Avlon and Hoover share and demonstrate how to fight for the national interest rather than special interests. Together, they offer audiences a refreshing outlook on the future of partisan politics and discuss the issues from all sides— left, right, and center.

Avlon is a senior political analyst and fill-in anchor at CNN. He was formerly Editor in Chief of The Daily Beast and is the author of "Independent Nation: How Centrists Can Change American Politics." The book is a rallying cry for the moderate majority of Americans who are tired of the far right and far left politics, encouraging them to walk an independent path between these extremes.

Hoover is a socially liberal, fiscally conservative Republican who is modernizing the party with fresh ideas and an open mind for change. Previously a Fox News Contributor, Hoover is a veteran of the Bush White House, has covered two presidential campaigns and is the best-selling author of "American Individualism: How A New Generation of Conservatives Can Save the Republican Party."
