A long-standing political tradition is the Sunday morning talk show,
beginning with "Meet the Press" in 1947.
Currently, five separate "talking head" programs appear on five different TV stations every Sunday morning.
Making an appearance on all five talk shows on one Sunday is known as a Full Ginsburg,
because it was first accomplished by William Ginsburg (Monica Lewinsky's attorney) in 1998.
In 2013, both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio accomplished a Full Ginsburg,
fueling speculation that both are planning a presidential run in 2016.
In 2014, John Kerry was the only person to accomplish a Full Ginsburg,
but no one thinks he is planning a presidential run in 2016.
In 2015 so far, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough accomplished a Full Ginsburg in the follow-up to the
January 2015 State of the Union speech.
