Norm Ornstein, one of the country's most respected Washington observers and a Minnesota native, was back home this week to speak about our politically divided country and what the future holds.

Ornstein says the election reflects what he calls "angry populism" and "partisan tribalism."

Norm Ornstein is resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

He spoke November 15, 2016 at MinnPost's 9th anniversary celebration at the Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts in Minneapolis.

Eric Black of MinnPost was the moderator.
