On October 5, exactly one month from the midterm elections, Howard Dean joined The Nation's Ari Berman onstage at 92YTribeca in New York City to examine the future of the Democratic party in the face of lagging enthusiasm and partisan attacks. Berman's debut book, Herding Donkeys: The Fight to Rebuild the Democratic Party and Reshape American Politics, published this month by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, tells the inside story of Dean's visionary yet controversial fifty-state strategy, charts his unpredictable journey from an insurgent presidential candidate in 2004 to the chairman and conscience of the Democratic Party and shows how President Obama's campaign—particularly its groundbreaking embrace of grassroots organizing and activism—built upon Dean's blueprint. The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel moderated the talk, which runs one hour and eight minutes.
