CROSSFIRE doubts us
"The Dean campaign claims to have raised more than 100 grand today, $55,000 of that just in the hour between noon and 1:00, all of which raises the important question, who in his right mind would give money to Howard Dean at this point? Well, if you're one of those who did, we want to hear from you. Explain yourself to CROSSFIRE@CNN.com. I'm fascinated by that."
Write in! and leave a copy of the email you wrote in the comments.
Remember - the Dean Nation goal is $45,000 by Feb. 17th. Have you swung the bat? Let's give Tucker Carlson something to be "fascinated" by!

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.
