Chris Matthews, Host, "Hardball with Chris Matthews," MSNBC; Author, Tip and Gipper: When Politics Worked
Michael Moritz, Managing Member, Sequoia Capital - Moderator
An established Washington insider, Matthews spent six years as a top aide and chief-of-staff to legendary Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill (D-Mass). During that time he witnessed the inner workings of the highest levels of American politics, including the evolving relationship between two of the most powerful men in the country – O’Neill and then-President Ronald Reagan. Now Matthews focuses on the unlikely friendship between the pair, which endured philosophical differences and bipartisan politics to reach much-needed compromise. Leaving behind a career in politics for journalism, Matthews has worked for the San Francisco Examiner and San Francisco Chronicle and has hosted “Hardball with Chris Matthews” since 1997.
