Gephardt Unions financed Willie Horton style attack ad http://blog.deanforamerica.com/archives/002725.html
This is what the fight for Iowa has come to, folks. Gephardt is making his stand there, and he's apparently vowed to win by whatever means neccessary. Consider this a test of what we'll face if we go up against Bush next fall. React to this in whichever way you choose (letters to Gephardt, donations to Dean, signing petitions, writing letters to Iowans, whatever), but please don't just sit there and let these people make a mockery of the process.
More on this issue may be found in our archives here, here, and here.

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.
