The election of Donald Trump in 2016 caused a political earthquake within the United States that left the Democratic Party stunned and rudderless. After a tumultuous presidency that has faced global conflicts, a health pandemic, and racial unrest, the Democrats are gearing up to defeat Donald Trump in less than 100 days.

Paul Begala, former advisor to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama’s reelection campaign, offers the best political strategies to ensure a victory for former Vice President Joe Biden in November, which he details in his new book You’re Fired.

Célia Belin, a French political scientist who spent months following Democratic candidates for her critically acclaimed book Des Démocrates en Amérique, will offer a unique French perspective on this critical election followed closely around the world.
