Dean In New Hampshire
Since the issue today seemed to be about the media circus and their pre-written agendas, I thought I'd give you a shot of who's starting to get comfortable in the press conference chairs. After all these months I can tell you pretty confidently that a Dean Presidency would bring back the obligation of the Press Conference in the White House. What is it? Bush's Dad had hundreds and Little Bush is on his 20th, or something like that (wish I had the numbers. Let me know if you do)? But, hey, we're at war--why should the President talk to the people?
Help me ID some of the journalists if you can. I'll share this at DeanTV.org later. From Manchester, NH Public Library (12-18-03).

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.
