Dean Meet-up Today -- BE PREPARED! http://www.deanforamerica.com/meetup/hostkit2.cfm
Even if you are not the designated "host" for your meet-up, you should download and print this host kit and this sign-in sheet (both .pdf files) just in case your host doesn't show or neglected to prepare.
For those of you bringing laptops or whose venue can play a compact disc, head over to the California for Dean website where they have several minute-long video clips you can download and show at the meet-up.
Don't leave this to chance! Some folks had bad experiences at the last meet-up because no one at their venue was prepared. Far better to have too many people with agendas than none at all. Get the Dean 2004 Meet-up Kit now to make sure that your meet-up is a success.
If you haven't signed up for the Dean 2004 Meet-up in your town, you can sign up here.

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.
