Houston rally and fundraiser on Tuesday (Aziz, you better be there!) http://dfw.deanfortexas.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=22&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0
Also, I'm packing right now and heading off to Iowa for the annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner on Saturday, and I'll have a full report and pictures provided I have 'net access on Saturday. Cross your fingers for me, will ya? So far I'm 0 for 3 for onsite access. If not, I'll post everything on Monday. And if any of you Dean Nationals out there are going to be at the dinner, find me and say hello. I look like this. Just kidding. That was for Oliver Willis. This is me here (yea, that's Yoda - er, Trippi - on the left).

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.
