NPR to Put ‘Spark’ Into Your Day

NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” is trying something new they’re calling “The Spark.” The series explores what puts someone on the path to the presidency. They’re profiling a dozen possible GOP possible presidential hopefuls to find out what made them fall for politics.

The first two series pieces on Tim Pawlenty and Mitt Romney are online now at, and see all of the politicians covered here.

There’s also a game in which you can match the “spark” with the politician. Test your knowledge here.  (The game is actually a pretty fun distraction…)
