"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

Dean Surpasses $5 Million on the Internet

BURLINGTON-Governor Howard Dean's presidential campaign announced today that as of July 21st, it has raised more than $5 million over the Internet in 2003. In addition, Dean's massive grassroots campaign has continued to grow to more than 207,222 Americans across the country, with nearly 65,000 people signed up to attend monthly "Meetups" for Howard Dean.

"We are building the great grassroots campaign of the modern era," Campaign Manager Joe Trippi said. "These 207,000 people are out in their communities everyday, talking to neighbors, passing out flyers at public events, and working to spread Howard Dean's message of restoring the American community through the active participation of people in their own self-government."

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.
