"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

VOTE for DeanBlog Interview questions

posted by Aziz P. at Friday, April 18, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Thanks to everyone who left questions for the DeanBlog Interview! Especially with the various Haloscan comments failures - your patience was appreciated. I'd like to apologise to everyone for the long, inexcusable delays in getting this moving forward.

I've painstakingly gone through the list, trimmed the duplicates, filtered out those that could be answered by Dean's Issues Statements on the campaign website, and these are the result. I also removed a few questions that were either too vague/philosophical, or too Vermont-specific, trying to keep the focus on concrete national issues. If you feel your question was unfairly removed, leave a comment and let me know.

The final questions are in the comments section of this thread, and the poll below has the questions. Please vote for your top three (3) questions, and the ten most popular will be the ones we send to the campaign. Please note, the poll software will allow you to vote for more than three choices, but we are relying on the honor system and asking everyone to please limit themselves to just three choices only. Please.

UPDATE: There is indeed similarity between the "UN Resolutions and Israel" question with the "Israeli settlements" one. If I did it again, I'd combine them, but i can't at this point without restarting the poll, which I'd prefer not to do at this stage. The best compromise I can think of is, please try to address them separately, but if the totals are very similar, we will lump them together and combine to votes. If the totals are very dissimilar, we wil treat them separately. If you want to qualify/explain your vote, please use the comments section for feedback.

UPDATE: The poll has moved to the right-hand sidebar beneath the Zonkboard.

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.
