Ask Eli Anything

In case you don't know Eli Lake:

[He] is the national security correspondent for the Daily Beast and Newsweek Magazine and a frequent contributor to the Bloggingheads.tv. He was previously a national security reporter at the New York Sun and the State Department correspondent for the UPI. He is also a contributing editor for The New Republic. In addition to his journalistic endeavours, Lake is an accomplished amateur rapper, focusing on old school jams. His specialty is improvisations which incorporate the political news of the day. Lake's rapping has been referenced on Talking Points Memo and he has collaborated with blogger Spencer Ackerman on some online rap projects.

Eli recently faced off with Spencer over Beltway culture. You know the drill by now: enter a question into the field at the top of the Urtak poll (ignore the "YES or NO question" aspect and simply enter any open-ended question). We primed the poll with questions you can vote on right away – click "Yes" if you are interested in seeing Eli answer the question or "No" if you don't particularly care. We will air his responses soon.
