On his 25th visit to NH, Dean slams Bush budget http://www.politicsnh.com/archives/pindell/2003/february/2_07_03.htm
All presidential candidates were invited to address the USCM’s Urban Economic Policy Committee, but only Dean accepted. Manchester Mayor Bob Baines chairs this committee. Nine mayors from New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Arkansas attended the day long meeting. "Politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, like to say how they believe in local control and then when they get in office it’s another story," Dean said. "I know from my time in Vermont that local implementation is the best for government programs. I believe in partnerships because they have worked for me in the past." ...After the morning speech, Dean headed over to the classic primary stop of the Merrimack Restaurant in downtown Manchester before heading over to Keene. It was his 25th trip to the state since he began exploring a presidential.

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.
