Howard Dean Presidential, Howard Dean Supports Aide’s New Memoir with Public Appearances, First Book Event Set for Jan. 20 in Manchester, Vt.  Longtime aide Kate O’Connor’s new book, “Do The Impossible: My Crash Course on Presidential Politics Inside the Howard Dean Campaign,” is sparking headlines in her home state of Vermont – and a series of joint public appearances with the former candidate.

O’Connor and Dean are scheduled to hold the first of a series of book appearances Friday, Jan. 20, at 6 p.m. at Manchester, Vt.’s Northshire Bookstore – an affiliate of the memoir’s publisher, Shires Press.

The 482-page paperback offers an insider’s view of the unlikely juggernaut that captivated grassroots voters and confounded the Democratic political establishment in 2004. Starting with the bid’s humble beginnings, the day-to-day account chronicles the highs and lows as Dean and his staffers learn how to deal with the press, other politicians and the double-edged nature of popularity.

Vermont’s Rutland Herald newspaper says: “For political junkies craving an inside look at the infamous dysfunctionality of the Dean campaign, O’Connor delivers.”

The state’s Associated Press bureau adds: “The memoir provides a wealth of insight about the state of political coverage by the U.S. media in the early 21st century, a sense of the frenetic and exhausting pace of commuting daily from Vermont to far-flung cities around the country, the fact that presidential campaigns aren’t friendly to someone trying to keep a healthy diet, and, in the case of the infamous ‘Dean scream’ in Iowa, how things often appear different on TV than they did at the scene.”

O’Connor served as an aide to Dean from his swearing-in as Vermont governor in 1991 to the last day of his presidential candidacy in 2004.
