"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

Road Trip! (Gotta Love The Three-Day Weekend)

posted by Dana at Sunday, January 18, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
The press was alerted that a "special guest" would accompany Governor Dean to his Davenport rally this afternoon.

Here she is:

Meet me at the airport hanger, Judy Dean, Judy Dean.

And for those who think that the good doctor (as opposed to her husband, the Good Doctor) is running out on her patients, know this.

We have a three-day weekend here. Tomorrow is not just Iowa caucus night, but the MLK holiday. Dr. Judith Steinberg Dean has two other physicians in practice with her, so her patients have coverage. She really doesn't have to be back at the office until Tuesday morning.

And, I ask you, what could be a more romantic rendezvous than Davenport, Iowa in January?

For those of you who insist on a "traditional" political wife as "First Lady," People also reported this week she makes a good chocolate chip cookie. (Now if she has time tonight to switch her husband from strawberry milk shakes to smoothies we're golden.)

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.
