Dean discloses tax information http://abcnews.go.com/wire/Politics/ap20030414_1420.html
Although not required to do so, Dr Dean has released his tax information for 2002. He's stated repeatedly that it's important to know where our candidates get their income, in large part because that can reveal potential conflicts of interest. Drs Dean and Steinberg had an adjusted gross income of $110,141 and paid $29,242 in federal income taxes. Their holdings consist largely of stocks, bonds, and real estate (including 560 acres of undeveloped land in Vermont).

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.
