It literally almost brought me to tears. I've never seen so many people so united with so little effort. And it is the response to the DLC that proves exactly why they're wrong. Head over to the official site and you can read over a thousand letters from Dean supporters. Some are former Greens, some were formerly non-political, some are lifelong Democrats, some are county party chairs, some are Republicans, some are independents.
Dean's backers are more than diverse. We are America. And we're committed.
And it is really, truly beautiful.
So thank you, all of you for all you've done.
And thank you, to the campaign staff, for all your hard work.
And thank you, Joe Trippi, for leading us in these battles.
And thank you, Howard Dean, for everything.
Literally, for everything.

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.
