Dean Takes Boston by Storm http://www.onpointradio.org/shows/2003/11/20031103_b_main.asp
"On Point," an excellent nightly, live public affairs discussion show on Boston's news-oriented public radio station, WBUR (based at Boston University), and hosted by the journalist Tom Ashbrook, has begun a series of profiles about the Democratic Presidential candidates. Appropriately, OP kicked the series off last night with a lengthy profile of Howard Dean (RealPlayer), who was interviewed on the show, along with longtime Dean aide Kathy Hoyt and reporter Sarah Schweitzer, who covers the Dean campaign for the Boston Globe.
Check out the link to the story for past "On Point" segments about Dean, as well (scroll down).
An editorial in yesterday's Boston Globe ties in nicely with the youth-oriented theme of the Rock the Vote debate, calling Dean "the only Democratic candidate who has energized young adults" who have in turn "spearheaded a grassroots campaign that has taken the political world by storm."

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.
