"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

Dirty Tricks?

posted by Brian Ulrich at Wednesday, December 10, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
I was looking for information on Dean's recent Middle East statements when I came across this article about how pro-Israel groups and congresspeople have been getting spammed with messages claimed that Dean is an enemy of Israel. Steven Grossman has suggested that some of these messages may come from people associated with other campaigns. If he's right about that, these other candidates need to stop doing Bush's smearing for him. I seriously doubt a man whose campaign co-chair is a former head of AIPAC will be turning against Israel anytime soon.

Elisabeth Riba seems to have a handle on things.

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.
