"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

Open Thread Topic: Dean On Meet The Press

posted by Heath at Sunday, March 14, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
Pretty neat seeing Dean back on the national stage this morning on MTP, eh? Sure, it's a bitter pill to hear him stumping for Kerry, but in between the promotions he's managing to get our message out. He's reminding those that Dated Dean and Married Kerry that he's not going away and will be the faithful usher waiting with open arms should the Groom falter at the alter. When Russert's session ended I actually tortured myself with thoughts about why Dean would be the best VP choice. You know; money, organization, good attack dog, shorter than Kerry, good age....yea yea yea NOSTALGIA already. What did you come away with from the MTP interview?

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.
