Dean's response to GOP convention dates

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

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.
