Show will go on at Democratic Convention


WASHINGTON -- Whether the Democratic Party has a nominee before the convention, the show will go on in Denver, producers said Thursday.

"The Democratic National Convention is something that happens every four years under the bylaws of the Democratic Party," convention co-executive producer Ricky Kirshner said. "If both candidates or nominees come to the convention, it will still happen."

Kirshner and the other executive producer, Mark Squier, said they expected the process to produce a nominee but that the way the convention was set up, it could function if that still was an issue.

"There are rules and there is a process," Squier said. "There's been a lot of talk about chaos, but we're very confident that in Denver we can do what we need to do."
