The webcast may be down but
Lots of Dean TV this weekend. He did a good job at the AFCSME forum, not his best performance ever, but much better than at the South Carolina debate. He actually smiled this time. Please excuse the shameless plug and know that I have only the most selfless of reasons for pointing you here, but I've got a very long (way too long to post here) blow-by-blow of the Forum on my blog, if you'd wanted to see it and are inconsolable that you missed it, this is the next best thing.

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.
