24. Incumbents going last is tradition, not law
Dean made a great move announcing early a late date for the Democrats. The Republicans can still go last, but with Labor Day being 9/4, they would have to start the convention the week of, (coincidentally) 9/11. Ignoring the signficance of 9/11, it would seem that having the convention
in mid-September would be a minus - the TV networks have already started new shows, and would be even less willing to give up airtime. It will be interesting to see what the GOP does.
