    free publicity related to the convention, in addition to the convention itself.  However, sometimes important things do happen.  Did you see Obama's speech in 2004?  We had out of town guests here, and after that speech we all agreed:  that man is going some place.  I think Clinton's video "The Man from Hope" (or something like that) was quite effective, too.  Then there was the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1968.  What a disaster.

    It will be interesting to see what kind of publicity the RNC produces on radio and TV and in the print media.

      shifting in their seats. i take your points about big speeches but the number of people who pay absolutely zero attention to the conventions is huge. i remember chicago 68 well....funny how left wing in terms of social policy both humphrey and nixon seem today....
