"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

Colorado for Dean and Dean National Chris Cypser got some excellent publicity for Howard Dean and their local efforts in Boulder, Colorado:
It's not surprising to hear Dean devotees wax enthusiastic about their candidate. But Boulder resident Hillary Hall, the chair of the Boulder County Democrats...confirmed that Dean enjoys the strongest support in Boulder County [with 300 volunteers signed up...and] Dean is in the lead. Hall agrees with Cypser and [Jennifer] Shumar that Dean is galvanizing people who were previously uninterested in politics. "I would say Howard Dean is getting people out of their chairs and participating," she said. "The people who are participating (for Dean) are new faces to me." [...]

"The true root of Howard Dean's support is simple — he's a leader to the core," Cypser said. "He states exactly what he believes and doesn't mince words or swing back and forth as the polls change from week to week."

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.
