Nation-Building >> Dean dominates this morning's Note | return to front page

"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

Dean dominates this morning's Note

posted by Scott at Thursday, May 01, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
As we've all got the same addiction, it's a safe bet that most of you have seen the Note this morning. For those of you who haven't, click over to discover for yourself that without Howard Dean, today's edition would be both short and boring.

Here are the highlights as I see 'em.

1. Chris Lehane's endless sniping!
"John Kerry was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts for his service to his country. I really don't think that Howard Dean wants to get into a compare and contrast on courage and backbone"
2. A Clinton endorsement?!?
"In all probability, we won't be the premier political and economic power we are now..."
3. Beware the Blair Democrats!
...the Progressive Policy Institute's Will Marshall... claims Howard Dean is toast because of his anti-war stance.
4. Dean lays down the healthcare gauntlet!
(I'm going to keep on this issue until you all start caring!!!)
5. The Doctor sez: You gotta be like Bush to beat Bush!
"'The only way to beat George Bush is to be as very direct and clear as he is."

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.
