Meet with Tim and Win

By Chris Ariens 

Meet the Press is five for five. Of the last five presidential candidates who have appeared on the program, all five have won their primary or caucus.

Dec. 30 — Mike Huckabee and Barack Obama (both win Iowa)

Jan. 6 — John McCain (wins New Hampshire)

Jan. 13 — Hillary Clinton (wins Nevada)

Jan. 27 — John McCain (wins Florida)

The Jan. 20 edition of Meet the Press included no candidate, but rather a political roundtable of journalists and historians. And we understand Doris Kearns Goodwin won the Pick 5 the following Tuesday. So…there’s that.
