"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

Sunday Brings Good News

Two stories.

The first, we're within three points of Kerry in New Hampshire. It's 25-22, a statistical tie, with Lieberman running third at 10 percent. At this rate, Kerry and Dean will be the only two contenders landing delegates in New Hampshire. Zogby's report on the poll is available here.

The second, Washington state chair is heaping praise upon Dean in today's Olympian:

[Democratic State Chair Paul] Berendt hasn't endorsed anyone but says: "My heart is with Dean. My leanings are toward Dean. I think Dean is talking about some issues that need to be back on the agenda of the Democratic Party. He may not win the nomination, but he will have a powerful influence on the debate.

"I personally think that the candidate who will beat Bush will be one who challenges his policies and ideas."

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.
