Chicago 1968 (again)

25 08 2008

While still not ideal, this clip (thanks Huffington Post) is much better than the last clip of the 1968 Democratic convention violence I found:

I’d probably start about a minute and a half after it starts. At the end it switches to Dan Rather getting beaten up inside the hall, which is certainly more interesting than anything you’re likely to see during most of the coverage this week in Denver.

Speaking of later conventions, NPR played a very interesting story about the McGovern Commission’s reforms instituted after Chicago which you can find here.
