"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 in Rhode Island

posted by annatopia at Thursday, August 07, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Brian Macedo of Rhode Island for Dean asked us to post the information for two upcoming fundraisers in Middletown and Little Compton. Click on the link above for info on the Middletown fundraiser, and click here for Little Compton. The Middletown fundraiser will be held at 181 Kane Avenue (Opposite St. George's School Campus), Middletown, R.I. 02842. The one in Little Compton will be held at 20 Grinnell Road, Warren's Point, Little Compton, RI 02837. Donor levels are as follows: Host ~ $1,000, Patron ~ $500, Per Person ~ $250, Maximum Individual Contribution ~ $2,000.
If you can make it, this is a great opportunity to hear the Governor speak and to mingle with other Dean supporters. Plus, Rhode Island is a lovely state. My aunt and cousin live in Middletown and I had the opportunity to visit them two summers ago. I enjoyed the harbors and the sea walk, and the people were very friendly. It's also not too far from Boston, so maybe some folks from Massachusetts for Dean can make a road trip...

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.
