"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

it's been an interesting week on the Iraq mismanagement front - here's your chance to sound off, on that and any other topic!

Allow me to also take the opportunity to remind everyone about DeanLink - It's a way to register with the campaign as an official grassroots supporter and gain access to the Get Local tools for hosting your own Dean-themed events, getting in touch with other volunteers and supporters in your local area, and making contacts within the broader Dean supporter community online.

DeanLink is more than just signing up for the campaign email list - it's a way for you to actively be a part of the grassroots army that is out there winning hearts and minds for Dean. It's putting the People in People-Powered! If you haven't already signed up, just click the link above and join up now!

About Nation-Building

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.
