Nation-Building >>'s Howard Dean discussion board | return to front page

"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

Wednesday, March 05, 2003's Howard Dean discussion board

The good people behind have a section of their message board which is dedicated to discussing the current contenders. In the Dean section (linked above) there are mostly positive reviews, and some posters have expressed their gratitude over HD acknowledging that Gore was robbed in 2000. Granted, there are some concerns (not everyone gels with his handgun stance, for example), but again, mostly positive comments are coming from that camp.

To the good folks at AlGore04: I honestly don't think that Al is going to run, but I admire you all for your tenacity. I completely agree and acknowledge the fact that Bush is a squatter in the White House, and Gore was the winner in 2000. I am sure you'd find similar sentiment among Dean's supporters. As a Dean supporter, I'd really like the pro-Gore folks to come on board or at least consider supporting Dr. Dean (because again, I don't believe Al is going to jump in at this point). I think that Howard will champion and respect the issues that you hold dear (such as the environment, technology, and the economy), and I do believe that he is the only one who will not give Bush any wiggle room during the debates.

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.
