"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

Great Press Coverage of the Declaration

posted by G at Tuesday, June 24, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Excerpt from the Washington Post article:
Standing on the main street of this small, lakeside city, Dean hit one populist note after another as he cast himself as a champion of the middle and working classes, a sensible man who could balance a budget and enact progressive health and social policies.
Excerpt from the NY Times article:
Beyond offering a new rationale for his candidacy, the speech today seemed intended to lift Dr. Dean into a new phase of his campaign: from the scrappy maverick into a serious, if not quite establishment, candidate who is viewed in the top tier of this crowded field.

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.
