"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

Doctors for Dean

posted by Aziz P. at Sunday, September 07, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
I owe the Doctors for Dean folks a massive apology for not plugging them earlier. I can only plead the SoBig defense. They have created a profesional website and a Yahoo discussion list for both healthcare professionals and others. From their FAQ:

Doctors for Dean is a grassroots organization of physicians who strongly support Dr. Howard Dean and are working to help him become the next President of the United States. Any physician can join this organization via the link below (note that you may have to create a free Yahoo account if you do not have one already). Alternatively, you can just send an email to to join the email list only (optionally include your name, specialty, interests and contact information). We plan to send periodic emails to all Doctors for Dean members about Dr. Dean’s healthcare vision and ways you can help the campaign.

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.
