A regular national news commentator and prolific writer who has provided live on-air commentary for CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other prominent outlets, Pete Seat's voice is sought after for both his astute political analysis and his zeal for playing Devil's Advocate with conventional political wisdom (is there even such a thing?). Based in the Midwest Heartland of America, Pete Seat sees political life from the day-to-day perspective of the average American, while at the same time possessing a keen understanding of the ways in which Washington, D.C., works (or doesn't) following his tenure on the White House staff of President George W. Bush. Utilizing his unique set of experiences from being the only child of immigrant parents to his tenure at The White House, Pete Seat helps audiences transcend the talking points to better understand how it all comes together.
