Winds of change over at Sully's place? http://www.andrewsullivan.com/index.php?dish_inc=archives/2003_08_31_dish_archive.html#106270290017086123
BIG GOVERNMENT BUSH: More evidence of the runaway federal government under Bush. The sheer profligacy of this administration continues to astound. If you're a fiscal conservative, Howard Dean is beginning to look attractive.

I put a question mark on the headline because I am not going to assume that Andy has seen the light and pulled a Michael Cudahy. But I do sense that he's open-minded to the possibility that the GOoPers have forsaken their traditional platform, and that Dean might be a palatable vote for many a fiscal conservative. It should be interesting to see what develops over at Sully's place in the coming months.

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.
