We're thrilled to be joined by Idaho Democratic Party Executive Director Sally Boynton Brown this week, as she launches her bid to be DNC Chair during a week where Will needed to be reminded that rebellions are built on hope.
We talk about the Electoral College (3:05), explain why our Big Number of the Week is 66% (7:10), have updates on the DNC Chair race (9:14) then hear from Sally on why she's running and her plans for the party. (15:00) We have our initial Scoop! where we tell you what news happened this week that will have a long lasting effect (36:10), announce our GOPutz of the week (43:01) and say goodbye to 2016 (45:24)

We went from West to East on this pod. We start off with our BIG number of the week, North Carolina and the DNC race then hear from a first time campaign manager in Michigan on what went wrong. We continue our tour of sadness by hearing from Appalachia via North Carolina and what steps the party can take to be competitive again in this desperate terrain. We talk a lot about the basis of Trumps vote and experiences based off this article.

This is the first of a two part pod special recorded live on site at the Colorado Convention Center during the Association of State Democratic Chairs. The Future of the Party Forum featured candidates running to be the next DNC Chair.
The following candidates attended the forum:
Also, Howard Dean, Former DNC Chair and Former Governor of Vermont led with a special video message whose audio we've included. There is some typing/coughing that you can overhear at times during the recording, which we blame on the reporters sitting near us, we hope you'll forgive the noise that was happening in the room.
Follow us on Twitter or Facebook! We'll have the 2nd half of this forum out soon.
It's the second part of our panel discussion. We will not be talking about the DNC Chair in this podcast, but we do reach out to young folks, talk about cooperation with the Trump Administration, and we look at some of the early hires. We also bring back our GOPutz of the week which some of you were clamoring for, btw we gave you two different folks for the award this week!
