"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

discussion thread - Debate questions for Kerry

posted by Aziz P. at Thursday, September 23, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
It's great that we can come up with gotcha questions for Bush, but we also need to look forward to a Kerry Administration and what direction policy will turn under his leadership. My Deaniac bias aside, I think that Kerry needs to be sent through the same wringer - in advance. So let's play the same game - what questions would you ask of Kerry at the town hall debate?

Here's what I want to ask Kerry:

A common critique of you by Republicans is that you lack a guiding principle in your foreign policy. You recently disavowed promotion of democracy abroad, and mentioned giving nuclear materials to Iran. What are your principles and how will they inform your foreign policy decisions?

post yours - and recommend this diary of you think its important to ask Kerry substantive questions too. Maybe the campaign is listening - or at least, someone from the St Louis metropolitan area who might be in that audience.

(btw, link goes to my DailyKos diary on the same topic, please do recommend it if you think it should be seen more widely).

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.
