Last night I participated on a panel at the Shadow Convention, and the Nation's Eric Alterman wondered why Democrats never discussed what he thought was a glaring vulnerability in Bush's candidacy: the idea that he's totally unprepared for the job.

 frontline: the long pilgrimage of jesse jackson: Democratic Convention Speeches PBS
In this July 17, 1984 speech in San Francisco, Jesse Jackson sought to heal the division created by his Presidential candidacy and pledged to support the candidacy of Walter Mondale.
When he delivered this speech in Atlanta on July 19, 1988 just before 11 p.m., Jackson was at his highest.
This speech, too, was hailed as one of the greatest ever made at a convention--comparable to William Jennings Bryan's 1896 "Cross of Gold" speech, said some observers.

 OPINIONS
During the 1988 Democratic National Convention, Rev. Jesse Jackson stood before a packed house in Atlanta and gave what some call one of the greatest speeches at a convention - comparable to William Jennings Bryan's 1896 "Cross of Gold" speech.
In order to move forward, Jackson must look to his past - to the convention in 1988 when he was on top of the world.
He brought more than 2,100 delegates to the convention, second only to Dukakis.

 MediaWatch - August 1988 -- Media Research Center
The 1988 Democratic National Convention may have been a shining success for Michael Dukakis, but it was a dismal failure for the major networks.
For those who wanted to watch straightforward convention coverage without a lot of misleading analysis from network stars, CBS was not the network to choose.
For distorting the views of Dukakis and Jackson, for allowing reporters to insert their liberal personal opinions at will, and for showing the least amount of convention activity, CBS News earns the August Janet Cooke Award.
