Michael Hastings & Elise Jordan, Married

Just when you thought Rolling Stone’s political coverage consisted of nothing but Matt Taibbi’s fever dreams, along comes Mr. Hastings to single-handedly hoist Afghanistan commander Stanley McChrystal with his own petard. Rounding out the other half of this power couple is Mr. Hastings’ spitfire wife Ms. Jordan, a former speaechwriter for Condoleezza Rice and current contributor to The Atlantic and The Daily Beast. They’re a modern day James Carville and Mary Matalin! Except, you know, tolerable to look at.
