Lay + Bush = Cheat http://www.deandeck.com/
The Boston Globe recently wrote that Dean Deck "...could become the must-have souvenir of the 2004 primaries...featuring Howard Dean as the ace of all suits and his Democratic rivals as a long run of hearts endorsing the former Vermont governor. The current president and vice president are portrayed as jokers, and a certain Massachusetts senator is shown clutching his favorite bottle of ketchup." Please note, we are not affiliated with Dean Deck, but as of this week, they are Dean Nation advertisers -- our bandwidth thanks them! -- and your purchases will not directly support Dean for America.

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.
