Nation-Building >> Trippi Doesn't Forget Where It All Started! | return to front page

"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

Trippi Doesn't Forget Where It All Started!

posted by Heath at Wednesday, December 10, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
TrippiNHpic.JPG doesn't quite have the viewership of CNN yet, but Dean Campaign Manager Joe Trippi still managed to pause and let Dean Nation know that he hasn't forgotten where it all started for Dean.

In the following video clip, Trippi also demands that we fight to get out the vote--every vote--in January.

Sorry about the sound quality during my rushed questions which were:
Message to Dean Nation?
What more can we do?
What about Aziz's prediction of the Gore endorsement?

The room was packed with all the candidates and big shot journalists. Trippi was in a hurry to get on CNN. Needless to say, he had a few priorities in the spin room immediately after the debate at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. (12-9-03)

By the way, did you know Crossfire's Tucker Carlson likes the Dean Campaign because it reminds him of the Grateful Dead tour?

Did you know TIME columnist Joe Klein thinks he's helping Dean by being the biggest thorn in his behind?

I'll try to get a blow by blow debate blog up tomorrow if you want it. Let me know.

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.
