Anne Klein designer for Dean http://www.nytimes.com/2003/04/08/fashion/08FRON.html
This one is just wierd :) But cool, of course - seems that a designer for Anne Klein is taking a sabbatical from designing clothes to work on Dean's campaign! Who knows what synergy this will bring. Use the comments as an open thread for speculation and/or funny ideas about how Mr. Nolan can help the campaign! excerpt:
In a move as abrupt as it was unforeseen, Mr. Nolan, 45, announced last week that he would forsake his atelier to hit the campaign trail. The designer, whose only previous known flirtation with politics involved dressing Tipper Gore for her public appearances, said, "My ambition is limited to just trying to get a good government that is working for the people."
To that end he will work on the campaign of Howard Dean, the former governor of Vermont, who is a Democratic candidate for the 2004 election and who is an outspoken opponent of the war in Iraq. "It's time," said Mr. Nolan, who joined the company in 2001. "It's rough being in the business right now, rough to stay engaged in it when this world is in such a complicated process."

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.
