Hey, Jim, I didn’t mean to suggest you should take Kristol seriously. As mischief-making of the “let’s you and him fight” variety, it was splendid, however.
Real mischief in Denver by the Clintonites is unlikely, but it is not impossible, nor is it unprecedented. In Miami in 1972, party leaders lost control of the vice-presidential nomination process, and the delegates spent hours nominating various obscure favorite-son types (e.g. Mike Gravel, Sissy Farenthold, Clay Smothers, etc.) a process that pushed George McGovern’s acceptance speech back to 3 a.m. In the end, Tom Eagleton got only 59% of the vice-presidential vote.
A clever minority, determined to cause trouble, could disrupt the show if the Obama machine doesn’t marshal its forces on procedural votes.
