Chances for old-time convention look goodl

Dennis Byrne 25 January 2008 No Comment

Wanna have some fun? Let’s speculate that none of the presidential candidates in either party wins enough primaries to wrap up the nomination before the conventions in August and September.

Those too young to remember the last time the conventions were wide open would be entertained, enlightened and appalled at the sight of party leaders and state delegations horse-trading behind closed doors to select their candidates. As scandalous as this might be for some, I don’t think it’s necessarily cataclysmic because the smoke-filled rooms have produced some good candidates and presidents.
