Burlington Dominates Stowe 6-1
The Stowe Raiders (my hometown team) gave Burlington a good run for their money in Burlington's Leddy Arena until the end of the third period. Governor Dean's home team, captained by his son Paul, routed the Raiders for four unanswered goals to make the final tally 6-1.
We had a really good time, and it was a bitter sweet victory for the Governor as it was Paul's last regular season game of his high school career. The Governor said they weren't sure if he was going to pursue hockey in college next year. Good Luck Paul! You certainly have the talent to play where you want from what I saw.
Judy and the Governor ran into his old roommate from Yale (and Aspen) at the game. Their kid was playing against their kid thing. We all had some real laughs. Turns out, I play hockey with his old chum on Friday nights. Man, small world, huh? Or is it just Vermont?
Well, it's Wisconsin tomorrow--early. I'm going to try and catch the Governor at a church he's scheduled to go to. We have a lot of praying to do. See ya'll that can make it there. Wish I had a laptop...

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.
