    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 were planning a presidential run in 2016.

    In 2014, John Kerry was the only person to accomplish a Full Ginsburg, but no one thought he was planning a presidential run in 2016.

    In 2015, two federal officials accomplished a Full Ginsburg: one in the follow-up to the January 2015 State of the Union speech, and the other after a train derailment. Paul Ryan accomplished a Full Ginsburg after becoming Speaker of the House in November 2015.

    In the first half of 2016, two presidential candiadtes accomplished a Full Ginsburg: Ted Cruz on Feb. 28, and Marco Rubio twice, on Feb. 14 and Feb. 21.
