Texas Rangers Reports http://www.blogfortexas.com
I've gotta say that was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. Iowans are an amazing, progressive bunch of people, and they were incredibly hospitable. They also take their "first in the nation" responsibility very seriously. We really feel that we did some great work over the weekend, and we can't stop now.
As you can see, we're down to the last bat. Right now we stand at $14,127,460 with 178,135 contributors with less than ten hours to go. I know we can do this. I believe in Howard Dean, I believe in this community, and I believe we have the power to take our country back. Now is the time to prove once and for all that nothing can stop us. Not Wesley Clark, not the special interests, and not George W Bush and his cronies. As Trippi says, "LEAVE NO COUCH CUSHION UNTURNED." I'm gonna take another swing at the bat. I'm asking everyone here at Dean Nation to do the same. We aren't the number one Dean Team for nothing. We're number one because we are generous, caring, passionate, motivated individuals who've come together for a common cause. Remember, as individuals it's difficult to affect change, but together, we are powerful! SWING BATTER BATTER, SWING!

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.
