"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

Color me blown the eff away!!! Veteran NASCAR driver and Dean supporter Brian Weber will be driving a Howard Dean decked out race car in the NASCAR Busch series, with matching racing suit and hauling truck to boot!!!

You can click the image to see the website and a much larger image of the awesome car! Only two comments: the car number should be 44 not 84, and Brian, Dean Nation is watching, holding our breath, and we are looking for a first place win!!!! Race on, brother!

UPDATE: I can't even express how cool this is, and how it will reach an audience we would have great difficulty reaching in any other fashion. If there is not a Dubya car already, look for one coming around the corner before long. It's also a bit perilous from a PR standpoint: here comes the NASCAR primary, uh, I mean, general election! Speaking of perilous, Dean better win the nomination or Brian is in deep shit, so let's work our butts off!!!

UPDATE DEUX: The Dean Team could use your support in various ways! Read the full press release, buy Team Dean related merchandise, or you can contribute. Further, check out the 2004 schedule and send them an e-mail if you'd like to volunteer and hel[ organize a Dean presence at the races when NASCAR comes to your city!!!

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.
