Keynoters: Glenn and Jordan

August 1976
National Review;8/6/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 29, p830
The article criticizes the keynote speeches of U.S. Senator John Glenn (D-Ohio) and Representative Barbara Jordan (D-Tex.) during the Democratic National Convention at Madison Square Garden in New York in 1976. Generally the speeches were unremarkably delivered, with Glenn using cliches and Jordan, despite one striking passage, was almost equally vaporous. Glenn's speech touched on patriotism, traditional values, compassion and freedom. Meanwhile, Jordan admitted mistakes done by the Democrats.
