- Washington Post Contributor
Hilary Rosen is a Democratic strategist and a contributor to opinion pages of The Washington Post and to the PostPartisan blog, where she spars with Republican Ed Rogers under the “Insiders” banner. Outside The Post, Rosen is a managing director of the political and communications firm SKDKnickerbocker, as well as a commentator for CNN. A New Jersey native, she has lived in Washington for more than 30 years: attending college at George Washington University, doing stints on Capitol Hill as a staffer for Sens. Bill Bradley (D-N.J.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), serving 18 years as the chairman and CEO of the music industry trade group, the Recording Industry Association of America, and then working as the Washington editor and political director of The Huffington Post. Rosen notes that as an openly gay, Jewish, liberal woman, she has little in common with Rogers other than a love for their respective children. Rosen has two: Anna and Jacob.
