Nickles Won't Seek Re-election; Will Work Against Dean http://www.cnn.com/2003/ALLPOLITICS/10/07/nickles.senate/index.html
He will work for the Republicans in the coming presidential election and campaign against Democratic candidate Howard Dean, saying that he is concerned Dean would undo tax cut legislation supported by the GOP.
"I don't want him to be elected president," Nickles said about Dean, the former Vermont governor. "I'm going to be very active in the presidential race." Dean is one of nine Democrats seeking his party's presidential nomination.
Does he forget that there are eight other candidates? Does he think that a Dean nomination is certain? Does he think that he'll really have to work and that Bush v. Dean won't be the cake walk that many in his party claim it will?

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.
