Dean wins VT !! http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=politicsNews&storyID=4483018§ion=news
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Democratic front-runner Howard Dean won the primary in his home state of Vermont on Tuesday even though he quit the presidential race last month.
CNN and Fox projected the former Vermont governor as the winner in the state, beating front-runner John Kerry.
The delegate campaign rolls onwards - check CNN's summary page for latest numbers. I predict delegate gains in California and Massachusetts!
I also predict that Edwards' only chance of picking up delegates is in Georgia - and that's too close to call.

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.
