"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

Texas delegate report

posted by annatopia at Tuesday, March 09, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
ladies and gentlemen, i am now an *elected official*. can you freakin' believe that?!?! tonight i was unanimously elected precinct chair for texas 2217. i was also selected to lead our delegation in the senate district caucuses in two weeks. i never thought - when i started following howard dean's candidacy in august of 2002 - that i would be here right now, at this moment, helping to take my country back.

damn, this feels good.

as for our precinct caucus, dean took 50% of the delegates and kerry took the other 50%! and in the other precinct i was monitoring (2026) we got a 50-50 split with kerry there as well. EAT THAT, NAYSAYERS! keep your eyes on Dean for Texas tonight. we're posting updated delegate counts as the results are called in.

remember that tonight's delegate selection isn't the final count. i've explained it all over in my daily kos diary.

the delegate campaign rolls on!

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.
