"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

see Dean speak at the Children's Defense Fund Presidential Forum

posted by Aziz P. at Tuesday, March 18, 2003 permalink View blog reactions

Our field agent Teddy Davis sends this notice of Dean's participation in a "Presidential Candidates Forum" sponsored by the Children's Defense Fund on Wednesday, April 9 from 7-9 p.m in Washington DC:

The forum will be held at the Marriot Wardman Park Hotel. The hotel is conveniently located near the Woodley Park/National Zoo stop on the Metro's Red Line.

All announced candidates have been invited. What's more, I called Jane Farrel with the Children's Defense Fund and learned that the "candidates forum" is free and open to the public.

On the heels of Dean's electrifying performances at forums sponsored by NARAL, the DNC, and the California Democratic Party, rival camps are hoping that Dean's appeal will fade once war commences in Iraq.

Come out. Support Dean's prescription for change.

Prove the pundits wrong!

It's worth noting that in Texas, Gov. Rick Perry has announced that the Children's Health Insurance program will likely not survive the upcoming budget cuts as Texas reels from its budget crisis. The reason Texas has a crisis? Ask former Governor: George W. Bush.

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.
