Dan Goodgame is TIME Magazine's Washington Bureau Chief. He directs the sixteen correspondents who cover the nation's capitol for TIME, and works closely with the editors in New York to plan each week's stories. He also reports and writes on politics, economics and foreign policy, interviewing President Clinton and other top officials.
Goodgame was named Washington Bureau Chief in May 1993, after four years on the White House beat. He is co-author, with TIME's Michael Duffy, of Marching in Place: The Status Quo Presidency of George Bush, published in mid-1992 by Simon and Schuster.
In 1988, Goodgame moved to Washington after working as TIME's Los Angeles Bureau Chief. He joined TIME in 1984 after eight years with the Miami Herald, where he worked as an investigative reporter and Middle East correspondent. Goodgame began his career at the Tampa Tribune in 1975 as a night-shift police reporter.
While at TIME, Goodgame has reported and written cover stories on a variety of subjects including the 1994 elections, welfare reform, health- care reform, the Persian Gulf war, entertainer Bill Cosby, the politics of western water, former White House Chief of Staff John Sununu and (on three occasions) George Bush. Goodgame's journalism has won national awards.
Goodgame appears frequently as a guest on TV news programs such as CNN's Larry King Live and Inside Politics and CSpan's Journalists' Roundtable.
A native of Pascagoula, Mississippi, Goodgame earned a B.A. in journalism at the University of Mississippi, and a Master's degree in international relations at Oxford University, where he studied as a Rhodes scholar.
