Alyssa Mastromonaco on discovering your political values

Alyssa Mastromonaco didn’t exactly seek out a career in politics but, after an unforgettable college internship in the office of Bernie Sanders, turns out she was made for it. Alyssa rose in the ranks to become a true inspirational Washington insider, serving as President Barack Obama’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations from 2011 to 2014. Though she's no longer in the White House, she's still our go-to expert on politics—and life. Alyssa joins us in the studio to talk about how best to find your own connection to politics, why The Bachelor has somehow become the barometer on progressive America, and to reminisce with our host about some of television’s most beloved and defining shows.
