Today our great Democratic Party, which has saved this nation from depression, from fascism, from racism, from corruption, is called upon to do it again -- this time to save the nation from confusion and division, from the threat of eventual fiscal disaster, and most of all from the fear of a nuclear holocaust.
Of course Democrats are for a strong defense.

Starting at 11 p.m., and for the next fifty minutes (with more television viewers watching than at any time in the convention), Jackson seemed to turn the convention hall into a great revival tent.

 An historical analysis of the apportionment of delegate votes at the National Conventions of the two major parties
When the first Democratic National Convention was held to choose the Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates for the 1832 Election, the delegate apportionment among the States was very simple: it was equal to the number of Electoral Votes each State would have in the upcoming General Election.
By 1932, although the Democratic Convention that year was the last in which it would be used, the "2/3 rule" was clearly in its death throes: many at that Convention openly opposed the rule, including the eventual nominee and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
By the end of that Republican Convention, a minimum of 1,255 delegates (a majority) will have voted for the Republican nominee for President; likewise, by the end of the earlier Democratic Convention, a minimum of around 2,162 delegates (a majority) will have voted for the Democratic nominee for President.
