Back-to-back conventions

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Dick Morris makes a couple of decent points in a post about back-to-back conventions, (and also some ridiculous ones), but he does get one thing backwards:

But this year, while the Republicans got the later convention, and hence an advantage, the Democrats may have nullified the edge by scheduling their gathering right before the GOP's conclave. This juxtaposition will not give the Republicans time to clear away the Obama bounce before their convention starts.
Uh, no. The Democrats scheduled their convention first. The GOP didn't schedule theirs until 5 months later.
