"Vanilla Dean Ice-cream"
"A good ole fashioned vanilla bean ice-cream inspired by Gov. Howard Dean (who will hopefully become our 44th President). It would be special because this Vanilla "Dean" ice-cream has returned to the same quality and standards we have expected but are not receiving from the current vanilla bean ice-creams running the Vanilla Bean Party of the ice-cream industry. Or you could say it “represents the Vanilla Bean wing of the Vanilla Bean party“."

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.
