Open Convention?

-- by Dave Johnson

Lots of people seem to think this ends the election season. 38-30-30 gets you an open convention. (Same on the Republican side, by the way - you need 50% going in to lockup the nomination.)

Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your election year. Dick Gephardt and Pat Robertson both won one year... How did that turn out, anyway?

Update - Robertson came in second.

Hey, it was just a thought. Yeah, it's only a remote possibility, the campaign has just begun, and the convention is a long ways off. But what if it did happen? Wouldn't that be the greatest political event ever?

Pat Robertson finished second in the 1988 Republican Iowa caucus.
