"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

Takin' it to the Streets

posted by Chuckie at Sunday, September 07, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Gov. Dean's grassroots supporters were out in full force at the Adams Morgan festival in Northwest Washington, DC today. Aside from a few people walking around the crowd with Kucinich literature (but no table as far as I could tell), Dean was the only campaign with a presence at the festival, which ran the length of the diverse (and quite fun) Adams Morgan neighborhood. Volunteers report that despite bringing over 1000 stickers, the table ran out of them early in the day. Here's a picture of the volunteers talking to festivalgoers:

For more information about getting involved in the Washington metro area, visit DC For Dean, an outstanding grassroots site. There are plenty of activities coming up, from fundraisers to house parties to a rally at the University of Maryland tomorrow.

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.
