"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

Important Moveon Poll

posted by Zephyr Teachout at Wednesday, June 11, 2003 permalink View blog reactions, an extremely important grassroots organization with over 1.4 million members, sent out an email today to its membership, starting a “candidate engagement process” which could lead to an endorsement. Dean recently placed in the top three candidates in a poll of Moveon members (Kerry and Kucinich were the other two). A Moveon endorsement would be extremely meaningful for the Dean campaign—they have a substantial, active membership, and a strong grassroots base.

(1) Tell Moveon of your support for their endorsement process:

(2) Tell Moveon what questions you think are most important to ask a presidential candidate. They will ask the most popular questions of the candidates. Go to the following site:

And vote for the best questions or add your question.


Moveon's opposition to the Bush Doctrine of Preemptive War, their complete opposition to the Bush tax cuts, and their strong stand against the recent FCC developments make them a natural partner for the Dean campaign. Let’s show our grassroots strength to Moveon, so we can work with them to take back America in the largest grassroots campaign in presidential history.

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.
