"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

Shorter ABC Notepad

posted by Aziz P. at Tuesday, April 29, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
as a public service, here are condensed versions of today's Notepad entries. I've taken the liberty of reading between the lines as well.

Graham: The Senator schmoozed in Iowa. He talked of everything from health care to education to the weather, except for whether he intends to run.

Kerry: I was a Vietnam War veteran, the horror! Regarding the strongest military, thanks for replying, Dean. Please reply, Dean.

Sharpton: I'm voting for Gephardt.

Kucinich: Kerry and Dean didn't ask me about how I feel about our nation's military, so I'll tell them. They both suck.

Edwards: Following Clinton's advice, I will put the phrase "Ma'am, that may be. But don't forget who won." on a bumper sticker.

Dean: Chris Lehane is an asshole, but our campaign is too nice to say so. These guys, on the other hand...

Gephardt: Sharpton likes my health care plan. I'm voting for Eric Alter.

Lieberman: Dear Strongbad. LINK. I want to start a new website LINK. but I don't have any ideas LINK of what to do for my website LINK. I LINK was wondering if you could give me some ideas for my new website LINK LINK. This website will be cool LINK and I'll e-mail you when I'm done. Sincerely Yours: Joe. PS. Is there really a 200-word lim

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.
