Exactly what is the point of either political party having a nominating convention? The advent of political primaries has rendered political
conventions a useless waste of time. We knew that before the democratic convention that John Kerry was going be the candidate and that John Edwards
was going to be the vp candidate. We know that George Bush II and Dick Cheney are going to be the republican candidates.
This time would be much better spent with a series of nationally televised presidential debates.
It seems to me that we could be reminded that an election is taking place without spending hundreds of millions of dollars to do it. Also we will
never get a viable 3rd or 4th party when all of the media exposure is consumed by the demopublican 2 party system.
