You may have already seen this about people-powered Howard at DailyKos:

We are thrilled to announce that Gov. Howard Dean will kick off the 2008 Netroots Nation convention as Thursday’s evening keynote speaker.

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee and governor of Vermont from 1991 to 2003 addressed the Netroots community at the 2006 and 2007 conventions. This year, we’re especially proud to recognize his efforts to create an active, effective movement by organizing in every precinct and in every state.

Dean has been one of the most influential forces in the progressive movement. As chairman of the DNC, he has worked to make Democrats competitive in every race, district and state, while integrating national and state party operations and standing up for Democrats’ core values.
His belief that every citizen matters, from California to Connecticut, from Alaska to Mississippi, echoes our belief that the voices of all Americans deserve to be heard.

Netroots Nation is July 17-20 in Austin, TX. So if you haven’t registered, now’s the time!

See you in Austin!

Why should you care and maybe even consider going? Well, Dean’s 50 state strategy or at least his vision played a role in Obama’s success. Also, if you’re reading this blog and especially if you are a blogger, Netroots Nation is the place to be at, y’all. You’ll rub shoulders with leading bloggers, journalists, congressional staff and state legislators. If you’re a black blogger, this means a chance to be where the people who are making history and pushing this nation in a new direction will be kickin’ it. It means taking your place as a leader for change and ahem, hope. You want to be there. Trust me. JJP will be there — will you?
