"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

Demonic Dean

posted by Ezra at Sunday, June 15, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Today on ABC's This Week, they had a "day in the life" of John Kerry. It was a pretty fluff piece, but had him at the Wisconsin Convention. They also had footage of Dean giving his speech at the convention. This would be a good thing, but for some reason, the room was full of red lights and the good doctor looked positively demonic - he was a harsh shade of red throughout the clip. So even though Stephanopolous talked about his straw poll win, the image most viewers got was of this satanic politician. We have to be more careful with stuff life that. Red lighting does not flatter our candidate.

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.
