I think what we want to work towards is the abolishing of the notion that your political opponents are your real-life opponents. Wishing them well or recognizing their good works is what I would consider normal behavior, rather than so unusual as to be remarkable.
Too much MyTeamYourTeam-ism in politics, IMHO. Thats why Im not comfortable with the Democrat/Republican boosterism at other sites. I want us to define identity more broadly.

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.
