With the very survival of the Democratic Party on the line after the three worst presidential landslides in American history, a then-little-known Governor Bill Clinton and a band of insurgents at the Democratic Leadership Council started a revolution. Challenging the sacred cows of the Democratic establishment and facing the country's most popular Republican president, they fought to reshape their party and retake the White House in 1992.
Based on Al From’s 2013 book The New Democrats and the Return to Power, Crashing The Party features exclusive interviews with President Bill Clinton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Al From, Tom Brokaw, Paul Begala, Haley Barbour, Dick Gephardt, and many others.
