I'm Howard Dean. I'm running for President because the only way to beat George Bush is to stand up to him.
I opposed the war with Iraq, when too many other Democrats supported it, because I want a foreign policy consistent with American values.
I want to repeal the Bush tax cuts, so we can make health care available for every American.
As Governor, I made sure that every child in my state had health insurance. We added jobs, raised the minimum wage, and balanced budgets.
I'm Howard Dean, and I approve this message because it's time to take our country back.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
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.
