Today we are all reminded of the unprecendented contribution he has made to our party, and our country, particularly by bringing so many who were disenfranchised into our party, and into the political process, and I know he will continue to fight to do that.
I take Kerry at his word for his sincerity, but I plan to hold him to this sentiment. As should we all - by voting Dean. But there's only one way we can ensure that the DFA v2.0 organization can truly achieve its potential to keep Kerry and all the other politicians continually reminded of who they work for. We must help DFA retire its debt.

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.
