"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

The Newest Fineman Article

posted by Editor at Monday, July 14, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
I've been a bit busy as of late, so I haven't been posting as much. But I was surprised that nobody posted this today - so I took a few minutes to do it myself! It's the most recent article by Newseek's Howard Fineman. Entitled, Feeling Dean's Pain, it is aimed at learning "what makes Dean tick."

The article is especially good for people who are new to Gov. Dean. It covers items such as the death of his brother Charlie (the main focus of the article, I'd say), his "similarities" to George W. Bush, his upbringing, his medical career, and his political rise. Time limits will keep me from writing commentary, but feel free to do it yourself in the comments section!

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.
