California Lectures kicks off its’ 2010-2011 season with a very timely interview with David Plouffe. From California Lectures press release:
California Lectures presents An Evening with David Plouffe on September 13, 2010, at 7:30 PM at the Crest Theatre in downtown Sacramento. David Plouffe will be in conversation with Dan Morain, discussing his book, The Audacity to Win, his work as political campaign manager for Barack Obama, and his effort to reach first-time voters in the 2010 midterm election.
David Plouffe was the chief architect of the groundbreaking campaign that put Barack Obama in the White House. Plouffe's grassroots approach and innovative use of technology helped guide Obama to a monumental victory in the 2008 presidential race. Plouffe's book, The Audacity to Win: The Inside Story and Lessons of Barack Obama’s Historic Victory, recounts the story of Obama’s run for the White House, reveals details of this historic campaign, and shows how the campaign revolutionized politics. In his November 4th acceptance speech, President Obama referred to Plouffe as an “unsung hero…who built…the best political campaign, I think, in the history of the United States of America.” Plouffe has served as a leading political consultant playing a key role in elections nationwide. He is the key strategist behind Organizing for America’s first-time-voter campaign.
Dan Morain is senior editor and columnist for The Sacramento Bee. He has covered the California Supreme Court when Rose Bird was chief justice, the Legislature when Willie Brown was speaker, and the Governor’s Office during Gray Davis’ tenure. He spent 27 years at the Los Angeles Times and was part of the team that covered the 2008 presidential campaign. He joined The Bee’s editorial board in January 2010.
