The Dean Nation Rally Day http://www.deanforamerica.com/site/TR?pg=personal&fr_id=1090&px=1179278
As of June 29th, we were at $1,800. Today, July 4th, we are at $3,300. So give now, or come back on Tuesday for the webathon. $10 or $20 dollars, whatever you want to contribute. Tell your friends in the other chat message board sites, blog it, get out the netroots.
We'll post regular updates on the top of the left column sidebar. Lets kick off the 3rd quarter here by showing some people-powered-Howard action and sending the red up to the top for Dean Nation!

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
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.
