"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

"Buchanan and Press" on Monday

posted by G at Tuesday, June 17, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
The CW's coming around. In the full transcript, the talking heads say they think money will be an obstacle for Dean, but they all see the race as Kerry-Dean (as we have for a long time).
SCARBOROUGH: ... you should take [Dean] seriously because he’s passionate, he knows what he believes in, ... he is the best Democratic candidate out there.
BUCHANAN: ... do you think Howard Dean has got a chance? I mean, if he-let me say this. If he can upend Kerry in Iowa and then again in New Hampshire, Kerry’s cooked. ...
SCARBOROUGH: ... You look at Kerry, he’s stiff, he’s tentative, he’s reading scripts from Teleprompters. You look at Dean, he’s looking right into the audience’s eyes, he’s on fire, and I think he’s going to win. He may win Iowa, he may win New Hampshire, ...
PRESS: ... I think Dean is going to surprise them in Iowa. He’s going to surprise them in New Hampshire. I think people are looking for a new face. I think this guy can win. He can prove us all wrong.

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.
