"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

For your watching party pleasure...

posted by annatopia at Thursday, September 04, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Yes, I'm feeling a bit silly right now. I wanted to repost something that came up after the last debate: the Democratic contender drinking game. Now lest any of our gentle readers think we're endorsing alcoholism, I'll kindly remind you that this is all in fun. That being said...

Take a shot/drink when...
- John Edwards reminds us he's the son of a mill worker
- Dick Gephardt talks up his history of support for unions
- John Kerry reminds us he served in Vietnam
- Howard Dean insists on balancing the budget
- Dennis Kucinich yells
- Joe Lieberman says he's the only candidate who can beat Bush
- Bob Graham says he's from the electable wing of the Democratic party
- Carol Mosely Braun says it's time to take down the "men only" sign on the White House
- Al Sharpton tells us he's going to "kick the donkey" or lets loose a similar zinger

*hiccup* Have fun tonight! And let's have some feedback when the debate is over.

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.
