Story
Introduction
Matt Negrin started writing in the seventh grade and, before that, had already tasted the life of a politician -- having been elected president of his elementary school by running a candy-themed campaign aimed at 8-year-old swing voters. But souring on the experience after nine months, he vowed never to run for office again.

From 18 to 22, Matt survived eight internships — among them, at The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Associated Press’s Tokyo bureau — and two semesters as editor of The Daily Free Press, the independent paper at Boston University, where he studied journalism and occasionally slept. He also somehow found time to be one of the original bloggers for an AOL politics site geared toward students.

During the 2008 election, Matt wrote about what real, rope-whipping mavericks in the South thought of John McCain; how Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton could have picked a running mate before the primary ended; and why the Japanese wear face masks in public (that one unrelated to the race).

Matt’s favorite books are “Hiroshima” and “The Boys on the Bus.” He also is enthusiastic about Russian music composed in the Romantic era.

Matt's first job out of college was steering the "44" page at Politico, which involved tracking President Obama's every move. Now, he's a reporter at ABC News in Washington, and he's glad to be covering politicians instead of being one.
