And by that I mean the first day of political conventions. Given all the reports about the record ratings for the Republican convention, and the bump that McCain received as a result, it seems as though the Republicans lost absolutely nothing by canceling the first day of the convention due to Hurricane Gustav, and if anything, guaranteed a better, more compressed, schedule for the remainder of the convention. From now on, the political parties may take a long, hard, look at convention planning, and consider standardizing the three-day schedule.
