"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

Only 5 More Days

posted by Zephyr Teachout at Wednesday, June 25, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Thank you for all your amazing work on getting out the MoveOn vote! Thank you for all your incredible work getting together the 30,000 person national rally on June 23rd (see some beautiful slides from the rally, along with excerpts from the speech, here). Now, we are almost to the end of this critical month of June. There are only 5 more days until the end of the second quarter fundraising filing deadline.

In the last two days, over 5,000 NEW contributors donated to Dean for America. Meetup members have started to max out--people who have never given to any political campaign are now donating hundreds of dollars to Dean for America. People who have never talked to their friends about political candidates are asking their friends to join them and donate to Dean. We have five days to take the momentum from the June 23rd event and transform it into an incredible fundraising quarter--but we need the help of every person who cares deeply about this campaign. This is your campaign. Please donate what you can now--for the first, second, or fourth time--and send an email to all your friends, asking them to join us. Thank you again.

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.
