Howdy UN Dispatch pardners


I’m in Austin this week for Netroots Nation, and, in addition to trying out every BBQ spot in the city, I’ll be reporting back to you on how the progressive movement’s online arm plans to push for its international priorities. If you’ll recall, the discussion about global challenges (and international organizations) was pretty thin last year. There is tremendous energy and organization here. It will be a shame if it can’t be used to push the next President, be he a Republican or Democrat, rapidly forward to meet the global challenges we face.

Howard Dean is in the house tonight.
