comments are back
by next week, we will have a new server for donated users (like you) available so that we can at least bring the donated users up and running significantly faster. We will be sending out a mass email to donated users with more detail on the new server info. Thanks for your patience.
Also remember that we have the Dean Forum, ChatForAmerica, and the IRC channel PeoplePoweredHoward on kernel.ga.us.dal.net (not to mention the trusty ol' ZonkBoard) as well. We at Dean Nation transcend any one medium to discuss all things Dean :)

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.
