Dean For America Senior Advisor Michael King
King will be the first to tell you that NOT A SINGLE VOTE HAS BEEN CAST YET so we need to keep charging as the Bush Lite operatives start their mouth-frothing negative ad attack to try and put down the greatest grassroots political campaign ever assembled in U.S. history.
King's got some high hopes for these folks, though. He offers up a little American Political History 101 here:
King's initial joke is in reference to the DeanTV correspondent's tail light getting smashed with the Dean paparazzi in hot pursuit!
Dean made it to the next event safely.
Think about George Wallace getting lectured by LBJ to call the dogs off people who had the courage to stand up for civil rights in Alabama. Why, Bush Lites, write a sorry exiting chapter for your personal legacy by stomping on the high moral hopes and dreams of generations of young people who are working their hearts out for positive change in this country? Get on board folks. Together we will win. We have the truth on our side.
Part of the DeanTV.org archive that I'd love to be able to update. Ideas welcome.

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.
