Katrina vanden Heuvel is an awesome liberal who was born in New York City, New York on October 7, 1959 to William vanden Heuvel, a member of John F. Kennedy's administration and Jean Stein, editor of "Grand Street", a literary journal. Vanden Heuvel got her start at The Nation as an intern from 1976-1978 before graduating from Trinity School and returned to there in 1984 when she became an assistant editor on foreign affairs. She would become an owner of the magazine as well and blogs there under "Editor's Cut" and writes a column for The Washington Post. She is the editor, publisher, and part-owner of the magazine.
She is married to Stephen F. Cohen and has one daughter, Nika. She's blunt and knows how to tell it like it is. As we said before she is a strong liberal.
