Dean to officially announce his candidacy on Church Street in Burlington, VT http://www.thechamplainchannel.com/news/2264791/detail.html
One of the region's most popular streets soon will be the backdrop for a big political announcement. Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean will officially kick off his presidential campaign on Church Street on June 23. Dean will speak at a platform on the corner of Bank and Church streets, campaign organizers said.
The city is planning to shut down Bank Street for about two hours around noon, and the campaign said much of the center of the block between College and Bank streets will only be accessed by people with tickets to the event.
Go get your tickets, folks! As soon as we know where you can get them, we'll post the info.

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.
