"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

Turning a negative into a positive

posted by annatopia at Thursday, January 22, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
By now everyone's had the chance to have some fun at our expense thanks to the Governor's rockin' post-caucus speech. But I think it's pretty cool that the grassroots have taken that moment and turned it into something fun and positive. MTVNews covers the Dean remix phenomena and provides links to some of the remixes as well as an actual video clip of the moment. Watch the clip and you can plainly see Dean isn't angry, especially when he laughs heartily at the end.
As Aziz suggested, I've mirrored the remixes on my web server, and you can grab them all here. Have fun with this; some of the mixes are great, especially the one called "dean2", which IMO should be played at the beginning of every Dean rally from here on out.

And don't forget we've got a trifecta on television tonight. The debate begins at 8pm eastern on FAUX, then Drs Howard and Judy Dean will appear on ABC for a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer at 10pm eastern, and finally, our candidate makes an appearance on Letterman tonight at 10:30pm 11:30pm eastern. We have three opportunities to make our case to the American public tonight, and I'm hoping we take full advantage of all of them.

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.
