"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

Dean Nation Exclusive: Bill Bradley Joins The Dean Team

posted by Heath at Tuesday, January 06, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
Yesterday morning I didn't think I'd be getting up at 3:45AM to battle the latest blizzard to get to Dean. I'd already set my mind on Iowa as the next place to get some work done after we bury my grandfather in neighboring Minnesota this weekend. Then--SURPRISE!--Dr. Dean delivers another whopper of an endorsement for us to help bring our hopes and dreams ever closer as the primary season begins. Bill Bradley D-NJ, extraordinary for so many reasons (I'll trust you don't need a list), hops down to Manchester, NH to provide a little Pick and Roll move for Dean before heading off to Iowa to make the Debate and media tour.

Sometimes, one picture can make it all worthwhile. For me, it's the one above. Here's looking at all of you kids!

I remember meeting Bill Bradley in front of the Moscone Center in San Francisco at the convention in 1984. My friend was much more in the know and older than I at the time. She whispered to me that the person I'd just met would be running for President someday. Frankly, at the time, I was more interested in seeing the Dead Kennedy's playing outside the center while Ted Kennedy was speaking.

To me, Bradley's endorsement says a lot about us and what we are all about. Thanks Senator Bradley!

No questions were allowed at the event. But DeanTV did get a little video something here for Dean Nation:

After the event, it seemed like a good time to check in with Dorie Clark, Communications Extraordinaire for Dean For New Hampshire. Senator Bradley is one of Dorie's favorites. SORRY, the following video had to be work-oriented as we have so little time to get so much done:

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.
