"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

Another Candidate Takes to the Airwaves

posted by Editor at Tuesday, September 23, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Sen. John Edwards has launched television ads in Iowa and is expected to soon expand them to New Hampshire. You can view them by the link above. I think they are very well done and portray Edwards in a positive light. Dean got a bump when he was the first candidate on television, but I'm not sure if Gephardt saw similar effects. This is a "must" for Edwards - he's in the single digits and hasn't showed any momentum. If he starts to climb, this could keep him in. If he doesn't, then he may soon have to consider his options. My guess is that he dumps his entire campaign war chest into an ad blitz. I only wish that he was taking this message to the people of North Carolina and seeking a second term. He's needed in the closely divided Senate.

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.
