Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats' Campaigns to Defeat Trump


An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the story of an embattled Democratic party seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, and how it successfully regained the White House

In Reckoning Edward-Isaac Dovere, staff writer for The Atlantic, will follow the Democratic Party from the wilderness after the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, to the swearing-in of Joe Biden on January 20, 2021. In the four years that passed after the Party's leaders, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, fell away, the damaging cycle of rot and convulsion that Democrats seem unable to break out of continued to plague the party in the face of the rise of Trumpism, even after a historic midterm win. Never before had it had presidential candidates as disparate as Sanders, Biden, Buttigieg, Warren, and Bloomberg. Never before had the standard campaign playbook been thrown quite so far out the window, especially after the appearance of COVID in the winter of 2020.

Behind Dovere's fly-on-the-wall account of this period is a critical look at Democrats' search for a message and an identity, the energy gathering for more progressive policies, shifting geographic and demographic voting trends, and the recalibration of what the party stands for. The party has struggled over how to define itself in opposition to Trump, but also whether the answer is a return to the moderate politics of Bill Clinton, an embrace of the multiethnic liberalism of Obama, or a dramatic pivot to Bernie Sanders's European-style socialism, and the election of Biden leaves many of those issues to be solved.

Dovere has spoken with most of the key Democratic players, and will be drawing on conversations with, among others, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Tim Kaine, Cory Booker, and Tom Perez, as well as key players throughout all the Democratic presidential campaigns and beyond. The 2020 presidential election was one of the defining events in America's history and its future, and with its insider's command of the politics and contemporaneous access to the main players, Reckoning will be a fresh, timely, and timeless story like no other.
An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the inside story of how the embattled Democratic party, seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, successfully regained the White House.

The 2020 presidential campaign was a defining moment for America. As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president. This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the inside story of how the embattled Democratic party, seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, successfully regained the White House.

The 2020 presidential campaign was a defining moment for America. As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president.

How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president. This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president. This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the inside story of how the embattled Democratic party, seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, successfully regained the White House.

The 2020 presidential campaign was a defining moment for America. As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the inside story of how the embattled Democratic party, seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, successfully regained the White House.

The 2020 presidential campaign was a defining moment for America. As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people, and the often absurd process of running for president. This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the story of an embattled Democratic party seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, and how it successfully regained the White House

In Reckoning Edward-Isaac Dovere, staff writer for The Atlantic, will follow the Democratic Party from the wilderness after the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, to the swearing-in of Joe Biden on January 20, 2021. In the four years that passed after the Party's leaders, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, fell away, the damaging cycle of rot and convulsion that Democrats seem unable to break out of continued to plague the party in the face of the rise of Trumpism, even after a historic midterm win. Never before had it had presidential candidates as disparate as Sanders, Biden, Buttigieg, Warren, and Bloomberg. Never before had the standard campaign playbook been thrown quite so far out the window, especially after the appearance of COVID in the winter of 2020.

Behind Dovere's fly-on-the-wall account of this period is a critical look at Democrats' search for a message and an identity, the energy gathering for more progressive policies, shifting geographic and demographic voting trends, and the recalibration of what the party stands for. The party has struggled over how to define itself in opposition to Trump, but also whether the answer is a return to the moderate politics of Bill Clinton, an embrace of the multiethnic liberalism of Obama, or a dramatic pivot to Bernie Sanders's European-style socialism, and the election of Biden leaves many of those issues to be solved.

Dovere has spoken with most of the key Democratic players, and will be drawing on conversations with, among others, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Tim Kaine, Cory Booker, and Tom Perez, as well as key players throughout all the Democratic presidential campaigns and beyond. The 2020 presidential election was one of the defining events in America's history and its future, and with its insider's command of the politics and contemporaneous access to the main players, Reckoning will be a fresh, timely, and timeless story like no other.

An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the inside story of how the embattled Democratic party, seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, successfully regained the White House.

The 2020 presidential campaign was a defining moment for America. As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president.

How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president. This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president. This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the inside story of how the embattled Democratic party, seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, successfully regained the White House.

The 2020 presidential campaign was a defining moment for America. As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.

An award-winning political journalist for The Atlantic tells the inside story of how the embattled Democratic party, seeking a direction for its future during the Trump years, successfully regained the White House.

The 2020 presidential campaign was a defining moment for America. As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

As Donald Trump and his nativist populism cowed the Republican Party into submission, many Democrats--haunted by Hillary Clinton's shocking loss in 2016, which led to a four-year-long identity crisis--were convinced he would be unbeatable. Their party and the country, it seemed, might never recover.

How, then, did Democrats manage to win the presidency, especially after the longest primary race and the biggest field ever? How did they keep themselves united through an internal struggle between newly empowered progressives and establishment forces--playing out against a pandemic, an economic crisis, and a new racial reckoning?

Edward-Isaac Dovere's Battle for the Soul is the searing, fly-on-the-wall account of the Democrats' journey through recalibration and rebirth. Dovere traces this process from the early days in the wilderness of the post-Obama era, though the jockeying of potential candidates, to the backroom battles and exhausting campaigns, to the unlikely triumph of the man few expected to win, and through the inauguration and insurrection at the Capitol.

Dovere draws on years of on-the-ground reporting and contemporaneous conversations with the key players--whether in Pete Buttigieg's hotel suite in Des Moines an hour before he won the Iowa caucuses or Joe Biden's first-ever interview in the Oval Office--as well as aides, advisors, and voters. With unparalleled access and an insider's command of the campaign, Battle for the Soul offers a compelling look at the policies, politics, people and the often absurd process of running for president. This fresh and timely story brings you on the trail, into the private rooms and along to eavesdrop on critical conversations. You will never see campaigns or this turning point in our history the same way again.
