"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

Google bits

I've been scouring google today in search of news on our candidate. Rather than full-blown peices on Dean, it seems that the pundits have decided to name-drop Dean while talking about other candidates. Hmmm... What do you folks think that means? Here is a small sample:

LINK - Staffers working for U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge of North Carolina (who supports Edwards) sport Dean bumper stickers.
LINK - Buried at the bottom of today's column, NY Post reporter John Podhoretz issues a correction, stating he mistakenly identified Dean as the the man who said that Bush's exaggerations were worse than Watergate. The quote should have been attributed to former Nixon staffer John Dean.
LINK - The Wisconsin Democratic Convention starts today, and Dean will be there! Can one of the good folks at Wisconsin for Dean please provide some information for folks who'd like to attend? We briefly covered this in an earlier post, but would love an update if anyone has it. Right now it looks like the Rally page on DeanForAmerica is bogged down due to traffic, so let me repost the info: There's a public rally at 4:30 pm and the convention begins at 8:00pm. You must register in order to attend the convention. It's only $20.00! Call 608-255-5172. Also, this Reuters article explains why Wisconsin is an important primary state, and the only candidate to rate a mention is our own Howard Dean.
LINK - Gov Dean was in New Hampshire yesterday to kick off his "House Call" healthcare campaign, and he visited Lamprey Healthcare. This brief article essentially states that his message resonated very well with those in the medical community.
LINK - Today, Slate takes a critical look at the candidacy of Bob Graham, and he appears to defend Dean. Hey William, are you on the bandwagon or is it too early for you to declare your support? We'd love to have you.... =)

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.
