MEET UP Tonight: New Hampshire State Director Karen Hicks REALLY Appreciates All You Have Done So Far
There are two Meet Ups left prior to the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries. With no votes cast we have a long way to go. Credit should be given where credit is due though, and New Hampshire State Director Karen Hicks took a moment to pass her appreciation on to you as we push to get the vote out in such a powerful way that it echos to the general election delegate count.
Here's Karen's video message to you from Polly and Terry Shumaker's beautiful House Party for Dean in Bow, NH on 11/30/03:
As indicated at the HQ blog today, and based on every campaign official I have interviewed, the letters have been an incredibly effective way to get on a personal level with the voters in Iowa and NH. Like the personal calls and canvassing, they're making a big difference in reaching out to our neighbors. Funny, isn't that what Howard Dean is talking about when he recalls the sense of community this country used to enjoy so much?
If you're heading to New Hampshire this winter, stop by the PickleFarm and say hi. We make some good hot chocolate 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.
