On October 5, with the midterm elections exactly a month away, The Nation magazine political correspondent Ari Berman talked about his new book Herding Donkeys: The Fight to Rebuild the Democratic Party and Reshape American Politics with Howard Dean which 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. This podcast features the full program.
