Dean knocks Bush's energy "policy" http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20030205/ap_on_go_pr_wh/democrats_2004_2
"That is our money that is funding that, and if we have no oil policy we cannot conduct the war on terrorism the way it ought to be conducted." He also called the Bush environmental "record" : "...the weakest and the worst of all the things he has done as President."
The article also notes that three other Democrats are considering a run for the White House: Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio (made famous last year for being one of the few representatives to vote against the (un)PATRIOT(ic) ACT), Florida Senator Bob Graham (yea, we know this already, but he's recently had heart surgery and may be reconsidering), and former NATO commander Wesley Clark. Interesting, eh? Didn't someone suggest in the comments section that Dean should take a look at Clark as a running mate? Your thoughts, as always, are appreciated.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
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.
