Paul already mentioned this event, but since the number of people out there who still want to hear political jabber about the mid-term elections from me and others may be... finite... it's worth shouting from the Slog-tops:

Support The Stranger

Please join this night-after the midterm election gathering as Ari Berman, political correspondent for The Nation, is joined by Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning New York Times commentator Tim Egan, and The Stranger's associate editor, Eli Sanders, for some informed assessing. Ari Berman's new book, Herding Donkeys: The Fight to Rebuild the Democratic Party and Reshape American Politics (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) tells the story of the post-2004 grassroots resurgence of the Democratic Party, from Howard Dean's fifty-state strategy through Barack Obama's electoral victory, and on into the legislative stalemate and intraparty strife that followed.
