"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

First televised debate set for May 3, 2003

No that headline is not a typo. The debate will take place in Columbia, SC and will be moderated by George Stephanopoulos. It will be broadcast on ABC News radio, on "ABC News Live," the network's 24-hour Internet broadband news service, and in excerpts on "This Week." In addition, viewers in several of the early primary states will get to watch the debate via their local ABC affiliate.
This should be a good one, folks. Very rarely do we get to see ALL of the candidates in a major forum. This one should be entertaining, lively, and issues-oriented. But most of all, it'll show the viewing public that we've got some serious contenders on the Democratic side.

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.
