Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is set to take a huge victory lap on Sunday after announcing a deal had been reached to pass the Inflation Reduction Act.

"Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) has scheduled a full Ginsburg for Sunday. If completed, Manchin will be only the 31st newsmaker to accomplish the feat since Feb. 1, 1998, when William H. Ginsburg, the lawyer for Monica Lewinsky, first appeared on all five Sunday morning talk shows," Politico reported Saturday.

It was been over two years since the feat has been completed, last done by Dr. Anthony Fauci early in the pandemic.

"Manchin, who is recovering from Covid, will have one major advantage over many previous members of this exclusive club: He will be conducting all five interviews via a remote hookup rather than being ferried from studio to studio in Washington," Politico noted.

The second "full Ginsburg" was completed by Rep. Rick Lazio (R-NY) as he faced off against Hillary Clinton in New York's 2000 Senate race. Clinton would go on to complete the feat seven years later.

Her husband, Bill Clinton, did 'full Ginsburg' with George W. Bush after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

Then-Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani have done it. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has the record with 3 "full Ginsburgs."
