Is Bush Watching Dean TV? http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2003/08/20030804-4.html
From the White House:
Q Howard Dean is running an ad in Austin, attacking the President on foreign policy and on the economy. One, has the President seen this, since he is here --
MR. McCLELLAN: No, I think that's -- look, that's politics. There's a Democratic primary going on, there are a lot of candidates trying to grab headlines, but they need to work out their own differences and there will be plenty of time for politics later. The President is continuing to focus on the people's business, and that's what he's going to continue to do.
Q Can I just clarify one logistical thing? Can the President get Austin TV from the ranch? I mean, could he -- if he'd turn on the television, could he potentially see --
MR. McCLELLAN: I really haven't looked into it, but the TV here in this area gets the Waco TV, as far as I know.
Maybe he could pick him up on Larry King Live or the Today show then.

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.
