"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 in Scotland's National Newspaper!

Too bad the Scots can't vote here. Excerpts:
"I would go to the ends of the earth for Howard Dean," Darinda Sharp, a graduate politics student at George Washington University, declared. "When I first saw him on television last year I was amazed by his ability to articulate his vision. In fact, the fact that he has a vision impresses me."
On Wednesday Mr Dean’s supporters met in Washington and 231 other towns and cities to spread the Dean gospel and, just as importantly, raise money. At the Visions Cinema Bistro, more than 100 Dean backers turned up.
Some party officials hoped victory in Iraq would knock his campaign off course; if anything he appears stronger. "Their problem is that we’re not disappearing," says his campaign manager, Joe Trippi.
"Dean is a real person," says Mr Trippi. "There are four or five programmed candidates and we don’t need another one."

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.
