Remember Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign? Now that the president is nearing the end of his second term, it’s easy to forget how groundbreaking his campaign strategy was. Obama called for change at a time when Americans desperately needed it, and his participation-focused strategy drew voters in. The man behind the campaign was David Axelrod, a longtime political advisor who also served under Bill Clinton. On Thursday, Berkeley’s favorite wonk Robert Reich interviews Axelrod on his new book, Believer: My Forty Years in Politics at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley (2345 Channing Way). Now is your chance to hear two of the most influential liberal political advisers in discussion, as the conversation surrounding next year’s campaigns heats up.
