Episode 5: The CPAC Episode — It's CPAC week and Kristin and Shane are joined by guest host Alex Roarty, The Hotline's chief political correspondent, to discuss the significance of the conference, Jeb Bush's place in the crowd, and Rand Paul's increasing isolation from his own party.

Episode 04: Bush's family legacy, Clinton's foreign donors, and Hotline's presidential power rankings — In this week's episode, Jeb embraces the Bush family if not the Bush name, the Clintons stumble into trouble over foreign friends, a megadonor embarrasses Rand Paul, and the GOP field gets shuffled in Hotline's latest presidential power rankings. And at the end, learn why Rick Perry and Ted Cruz might want to crosscheck their donor lists.

Episode 3: Walker's dodge, Bush's hiring mistake, and Paul's foreign policy problem — This week, Kristin Roberts, Shane Goldmacher and Tim Alberta discuss Scott Walker's evolution slip, Jeb Bush's not-so-tech-savvy hiring mistake, Hillary Clinton and the wait for her campaign launch, whether there is any meaning at all in having a convention in Philadelphia, and Rand Paul's foreign policy hesitations.

Episode 2: Rand Paul's Bad Week, Hillary Clinton Makes News and The Bush Family Brand — On this week's TwentySixteen podcast, Tim Alberta, Shane Goldmacher and Kristin Roberts talk about Rand Paul's no-good week, Jeb Bush's general election strategy for the primary, Mike Huckabee's Iowa problem, Hillary Clinton's new hires, and Scott Walker's early - perhaps too early - rise.

National Journal Grows 'TwentySixteen' Initiative With New Podcast — With the 2016 presidential field quickly unfolding, National Journal has launched a new podcast, called TwentySixteen, devoted to delivering in-depth conversation on the candidates and their campaigns, as they strategize their way to the White House.

Episode 1: Mitt Romney's Ego, Dark Money Rising, and the Ryanization of Marco Rubio — In the inaugural episode of TwentySixteen, our hosts break down Mitt Romney's decision not to run, explore the influence of the Koch brothers, question Lindsey Graham's announcement and give readers some exclusive bits on Rand Paul and the White House Correspondent's Dinner.

Republicans Are Awfully Close to Violating the Constitution — Have Republicans forgotten that they too must abide by the Constitution? The document is explicit in its instruction to America's federally elected officials - make good on the country's debts. "The validity of the public debt of the United States," the 14 th Amendment states, "shall not be questioned."

The Do-It-Yourself Presidency — After 20 children were gunned down at a Connecticut elementary school, President Obama pledged swift action to curtail mass shootings. And, after reports surfaced that Bashar al-Assad had gassed his own people, the president vowed swift retaliation.
