"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

Ya know, we like to brag...

posted by Matt Singer at Tuesday, May 06, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
about how Dean has more MeetUp folks signed up than all other candidates combined. And it's true. We're the biggest kid on the block that is MeetUp.

And something else we especially like to point out is how much larger we are than Kerry. Heck, I think we've picked up more supporters in the last 48 hours than Kerry has total (but hey, who is counting?). But I think there's something perhaps more important here that I know Ezra, my host over at ezrak (my relatively full-time blog that y'all should visit), would want me to point out, which is that Gary Hart has more supporters on MeetUp than John Kerry.

Sure, they call him the frontrunner. I'm just having trouble figuring out who he's running in front of. It sure as hell ain't us.

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.
