"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

DDF: More Wrap-Up on the DLC

posted by Matt Singer at Friday, May 16, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
There's one final action I think we can take, and that is to try and get this AP Story from Vermont into places like the Post, or any paper that carried the original story that included the lede saying that New Democrats don't like Dean. I don't know what you can tell the editors other than it is an AP story, from Vermont, with a byline from May 15, 2003. For this one, it may work best to call the Post, which you can do at some phone number I can't find right now. Although, if you prefer, I'm sure you can still e-mail at

If anyone finds that phone number, please post it in comments and hopefully Aziz or someone can post it on the blog. I'm moving the rest of today and can't put in the time I did yesterday. It already set me behind.

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.
