Join Politics and Prose for a launch event to celebrate the publication of Filibustered!: How to Fix the Broken Senate and Save America with authors Senator Jeff Berkley and Mike Zamore in conversation with Washington Post associate editor and MSNBC anchor Jonathan Caperhart. Filibustered! combines a marvelous romp through key moments in filibuster history—from the first filibuster in 1841 through Southern Dixiecrat filibusters of civil rights legislation, up through Mitch McConnell’s transformation of the filibuster into a routine tool of perennial gridlock—with firsthand accounts of recent high-profile legislative fights, and a compelling argument that the key to the Senate’s future may be found in its past.
