"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

What's Tom Harkin Going To Do?

posted by Heath at Monday, January 05, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
We're all doing what we can in our own ways to make the big push in Iowa and New Hampshire. Tomorrow we get a major endorsement from former Senator Bill Bradley D-NJ in Manchester, NH. Another huge coup for Dean, given the horse race going on in Iowa, would be an endorsement from Tom Harkin in Iowa.

Perhaps a decision has already been made. I'm not sure if Harkin will even take sides but what do you think he will do? Will he endorse Dean as a nod to his old pal Wellstone who would have questioned his Iraq War vote? Will he give the nod to his old chum Gephardt from a neighboring state? Are there other unknown allegiences with others?

Either way--PLEASE LOBBY FOR DEAN while we still have time!!! Make a quick call or send an email please.

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.
