A panel discussion was held on the process of selecting delegates to the national party conventions and the importance of convention rules. Topics included winner-take-all primaries, superdelegates, the delegate count thus far for the two Democratic candidates, and the endorsement of candidates. After their presentations the panelists responded to telephone calls and electronic mail.

This panel was part of a conference on the 2008 National Party Conventions at the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies. It was hosted by James Thurber and co-hosted by Mike Berman, who was on the staff of every Democratic Convention since 1968. close
