"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

Hey John, Me Too

posted by Trammell at Friday, August 01, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
If you haven't seen you gotta check it out. I saw it featured on Daily Kos earlier, and Dean National Amanda Matyjas also sent us a link. It's a journal by a "downsized" guy named John who's following Treasury Secretary John Snow and Commerce Secretary Don Evans on their cross-country economic roadshow and giving them tons of grief. Funny, every time I start to worry that we can't or won't defeat Dubya, something emerges from the blogosphere that reminds me: not only can we defeat him, we will. Why? Because people like Howard Dean, and John, and all of you who read and comment on this blog and other blogs every single day, will not allow four more years of Bush -- we are all a part of the New American Revolution.

And hey John, from one "downsized" tech firm guy to another: if you happen across two jobs out there, could you send one my way?

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.
