"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

Texas challenge

posted by annatopia at Monday, September 22, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
As you can see, the bat is back! Time to step up to the plate and take a swing, folks. There's lots of fundraising challenges happening this week, and I'd like to hilight the one we're doing down here in Texas.
In honor of this weekend's Iowa trip by Dean's Texas Rangers, Dean for Texas is taking part in the Texas challenge. This is how the challenge works: we're divided into counties and each county's goal is proportionate to the number of democratic primary voters. The winning county will get lots of kudos as well as some fun prizes.
So, if you're a Texan, please consider making your donation via your county link.
For example, if you live in Bexar county, go to For each county, just switch the name to match your county.
We're trying to raise at least $100,000 toward the bat challenge. Take a swing at the bat. And if you're not a Texan, please consider making your contribution via the DN Team page link.

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.
