"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

Dean, Edwards, and Soros

posted by Aziz P. at Wednesday, May 26, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
On June 3rd, all three will be addressing the "Take Back America" conference. Check out this newswire report for more details:

Campaign for America's Future co-directors Robert Borosage and Roger Hickey today announced that philanthropist George Soros, Senator John Edwards, D-N.C. and Governor Howard Dean, D-Vt. will address the organization's 2004 "Take Back America" conference on Thursday, June 3, 2004.

Thousands of progressive leaders, experts and activists will gather in Washington to "Take Back America" at the Campaign for America's Future's conference Wednesday, June 2nd through Friday, June 4th. The conference will bring together all of the groups working hard this year, independent of the Democratic Party, to change the national debate, to challenge the Right and to promote a positive agenda for change.

The full conference Agenda is available on-line at, and there are a lot of other speakers and plenary sessions. Anyone in the Washington area who might be able to attend?

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.
