"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

Battle of the campaign advisors: Dodd vs. Edwards

posted by Nonpartisan at Sunday, January 14, 2007 permalink View blog reactions
Hey fellow Deaniacs, remember the guy who said this?

[Dean] kicks up so much dust to make sure voters never ask, "Is this man ready to be leader of the free world?" Once the campaign is on that turf, and not the Internet and fly-arounds, that’s when we will show our real strength.

Or this?

[Dean]'s tapped into an angry, motivated constituency who, for one quarter at least, pulled out their checkbooks.

Yes, folks, Jim Jordan has now signed on to work for Christopher Dodd.

Compare Dodd's choice with this guy:

We don't need another commission. What we need is action. What we need is pressure. What we need is enforcement and action.

David Bonior, that's who. New campaign manager for John Edwards.

Who do you think made the best choice?



A lot can be learned about people by the quality of the people they surround themseves with.

Remember, the White House is really run by the staff selected by the President.

I'll take the likes of Edwards' staff over the Dodd crowd any day.

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.
