"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

Sleepless Summer Tour

posted by annatopia at Wednesday, August 20, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Hello Falls Church, Milwaukee, Portland, Spokane, Seattle, San Antonio, Chicago, and New York! I'm posting this as reminder: the Sleepless Summer tour starts this weekend. Make sure you sign up to attend these rallies (you can do so by clicking on the link above).

Now as an aside, can someone with the Seattle group please email me? I am looking for someone who can put me up overnight on Sunday August 24. I've been given the opportunity to travel to Seattle, Spokane, Austin, and San Antonio, but I need to arrange my own accomodations. If you are planning on attending the Seattle rally and you have a spare couch, please let me know. I'm pretty low maintenance. =) If possible, I need a ride to the airport (SEA) on Monday morning as well (8:30 am flight, although I can take a cab if need be). Thanks in advance if you can help!

update As Ken pointed out in the comments section, I left out Milwaukee and Falls Church. I apologize for the ommission and I've updated the post. Thanks, Ken, and sorry 'bout that!

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.
