"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's a doctor on the campaign trail,1413,104~8676~1487790,00.html

I wrote on the recent trip to NH with New York for Dean earlier in the week, and mentioned how my partner in going door to door was the victim of a dog bite. The Associated Press decided to write about it as well:
Having a doctor on the presidential campaign trail can come in handy.
In this case, it's the candidate, Howard Dean. He assisted a campaign volunteer who was bit on her rear-end by a dog Sunday while going door-to-door in Nashua, campaign spokeswoman Dorie Clark said.

Later that day, Dean was meeting with the volunteers to thank them for their day's efforts in Manchester when the volunteer asked him about her wound.

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.
