On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, David S. Mitchell, author of the Obama Era political exposé We Hold These Truths, appeared alongside former Democratic US Senate candidate and North Carolina attorney, Ken Lewis, and Hampton Dellinger, attorney and former North Carolina Deputy Attorney General. The panel discussed Mitchell’s debut novel as an articulation of the Democratic Party’s strategic missteps in the aftermath of Barack Obama’s 2008 election, political strategy for the progressive movement in the 2018 and 2020 election cycles, America’s serial “demonstration project” problem, and why a Donald Trump presidency may be a net positive for the progressive movement.
