Washington Post reporter Juliet Eilperin is the author of “Fight Club Politics: How Partisanship is Spoiling the House of Representatives,” which details how the Washington political system has silenced the average American voter and calls for ordinary citizens to reclaim the institution that is meant to represent them. Eilperin was recently on the campaign trail covering Senator John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. At the Post, Eilperin covered the House of Representatives from 1998 to 2004 before moving to the national desk where she currently reports on science, policy and politics in areas including climate change, oceans and air quality.
