WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
From the AP:
Democratic chairman Howard Dean said the August dates were in the best interest of the party and anything after Labor Day would be a hardship for some party constituencies, in particular teachers. "I'm not worried about it at all," Dean said.I read somewhere that teachers are the top profession among Democratic Convention delegates, due to the strong support by the various teachers unions. And while some schools start in mid-late August, it's clear that a September convention would not work for the Democrats, so the last week in August still makes for a good choice.
