Democratic Strategist Releases Post-Election Issue

The Democratic Strategist Releases Post-Election Issue

Today, The Democratic Strategist-- the new and innovative political strategy magazine edited by William Galston, Stan Greenberg, and Ruy Teixeira--released its post-election issue ( The issue examines how national security, the economy, and immigration affected the historic election that gave Democrats gains across the board. It also assesses the get-out-the-vote efforts of the Party and the lessons learned from polling in swing districts.

In addition to essays by the three editors, the issue features pieces by Ari Berman of The Nation, Jim Kessler of Third Way, Celinda Lake & Daniel Gotoff of Lake Research Partners, Thomas Riehle of RT Strategies, and Jeremy Rosner of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research.

The online magazine's post-election issue also continues a roundtable discussion of Thomas Schaller's Whistling Past Dixie, in which Schaller, The American Prospect's Ezra Klein, Media Matters' Paul Waldman, and Democratic Strategist managing editor Scott Winship debate the merits of Schaller's "ignore the South" strategy.

We hope you enjoy the issue.
