"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

Join Moveon for Dean

posted by Zephyr Teachout at Thursday, June 12, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
When tens of thousands of people who have never participated in politics are organizing locally, you can tell that something extraordinary is happening in America.
We need your help to take this movement to the next level. This week, Moveon, one of the most powerful grassroots organizations in the country, announced that it will endorse a democratic candidate and throw its considerable energy behind electing the next president. has over 1.4 million members--and as many as 2 million people in its activist network. You can affect the outcome of this endorsement process, and bring hundreds of thousands of new people into the Dean campaign. Please join Moveon today:

This will allow you to be part of the moveon endorsement process. If Moveon joins forces with the Dean for America movement, we can become unstoppable.

Moveon's forceful opposition to the Bush Doctrine of Preemptive War, the Bush tax cuts, the recent FCC developments, and unfunded mandates like “No Child Left Behind” 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. Join moveon so they will join us.

Please share this message with Dean supporters, and soon-to-be Dean supporters, everywhere.

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.
