The Jimmy Carter Show

August 1976
National Review;8/6/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 29, p829
The article criticizes the Democratic National Convention at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. The convention nominated Jimmy Carter as the Democratic Party's presidential candidate. But the convention was likened to a soap opera wherein all the elements converged to give an impression of a victorious coronation of Carter: the script, the media coverage, the timing of each commercial breaks. But the spectacle can not hide the rumbling among the factions of the party--there were complaints coming from the women's liberation advocates, the African American caucus, the trade unions and ex-Wallace delegates.
