1968: august 26

The 2008 Democratic National Convention is historic because of what is happening within its walls. An African-American will be nominated as a major-party candidate.

The 1968 Democratic National Convention began 40 years ago today. It was historic as much for what happened outside the walls as for what happened within. Mayor Daley of Chicago opened the convention by announcing "As long as I am mayor of this city, there's going to be law and order in Chicago."
