"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Dean Signs on Ex-Democratic Chairman

Democratic Gov. Howard Dean of Vermont Signs on Former Democratic Chairman to Presidential Campaign

This is the moneyman. President Clinton had also endorsed Grossman in MA, whose candidacy never got out from under the shadows of the others in the Dem primary.

MONTPELIER, Vt. Nov. 12 — Democratic Gov. Howard Dean signed up a veteran party activist Monday to help him raise money for his expected run for president.

Former Democratic National Committee chairman Steve Grossman said he supported Dean at least in part because of Dean's help during his unsuccessful bid for Massachusetts governor.

"He was very much involved and supportive," said Grossman, a former chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party. "I've been impressed with his political courage, which I think is in very short supply in America today."

Grossman has a short Q & A at BW on the 2002 results, here.

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
