The Driver's Seat http://www.nytimes.com/pages/politics/campaign/index.html
Number of times a (possibly potential) candidate's name appears in a headline on this page:
- Howard Dean - 8
- Wesley Clark - 3 (possibly and-a-half since he also gets a picture with a headline, but the headline doesn't mention him; one other story just refers to the General)
- Dick Gephardt - 1
- Joe Lieberman - 1
- John Kerry - 1
- Hillary Clinton - 1
- George W. Bush - 1
How you like dem apples?
Someone pointed out that I had omitted George. He's mentioned in 1 headline, but included in two other subheads.

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.
