"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 will appear at California's Democratic Party Convention in Sacramento, CA

One of the email lists I subscribe to sent this note to me this morning. I don't have a url at the moment but will provide one as soon as I've got it. As it stands, I've linked to the meetup site (which BTW has over 5000 Dean supporters signed up!). updated: Replaced the meetup link with one pointing to the Convention website.


Governor Dean will be addressing the California Democratic Party Convention in Sacramento THIS SATURDAY MARCH 15th at 11:20 AM (updated the time, per California Dem Party office - Anna). The campaign is hoping to get hundreds of people to the convention in support of Howard Dean. This is your chance to show your support for Howard Dean to the press and the nation!

If you're upset with the direction in which this country is going, if you're upset with the impending war in Iraq, if you think that we can do better and that it's time the Democrats elected a real leader who will bring real change, then SHOW UP at the Sacramento Convention Center at 8:30 am on SATURDAY MARCH 15th to SUPPORT HOWARD DEAN. Organizers will be on hand in front of the convention center to distribute signs and materials. YOU CAN HELP by bringing hand-made signs in support of Howard Dean. Don't forget to bring empty prescription bottles filled with loose change to rattle in support of the Governor's message!

We need to show that HOWARD DEAN is leading a movement that will bring positive change to America. We need to get so many people to the Sacramento convention in support of Howard Dean that this becomes a NATIONAL STORY. PASS THIS MESSAGE ALONG TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. Post this in every discussion or internet group you belong to. Post this in your comment boards. Blog this. Print this up and post it in hallways. If you don't live in California, CALL anyone you know who does and get them to attend. If you're planning on going, bring as many friends as possible. Howard Dean's national momentum is building; let's accelerate it. Let's go do it, let's go get it, this SATURDAY MARCH 15th at 8:30 AM at the SACRAMENTO CONVENTION CENTER let's take a major step toward ELECTING HOWARD DEAN THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

update: It just occured to me that this Saturday is also another day of scheduled anti-war protests. Since Dean seems to be making serious headway with the anti-war crowd, I think this would be a great opportunity for networking. If you are in Sacramento and planning on attending an anti-war protest, try to print up some Dean flyers to distribute. If anyone has already made flyers, please leave a link in the comments section. You might hit up your local copy shop. I know that the Kinkos in the Dallas area has pretty cheap rates for self-serve, black and white copies. Perhaps the same is true for other areas? Anyway, this is a primo opportunity for us to keep spreading the word, so let's take advantage of it!

update: I stand corrected! Thanks to one of our alert readers who thought the schedule conflicted, I called the Democratic Party in California. I've adjusted the above post to reflect the correct time of Dean's appearance. I am waiting to hear word from the organisers as to whether they want to adjust the rally time accordingly. In the meantime, please prepare to attend the rally at 8:30am.

FINAL CLARIFICATION: Okay folks, prepare to show up at 8:30AM Saturday, because Dean will be arriving at 8:45AM! This is the final word from the organisers and the campaign office. So c'mon California Deaners, get out there and make yourselves known!

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.
