Description : Abstract
Christy George reports that the campaigns of Jesse Jackson (Democratic US Presidential candidate) and Michael Dukakis (Democratic US Presidential candidate) have different agendas for the upcoming Democratic convention. She notes that Jackson may not support Dukakis's choice of running mate because he would like to be named as Dukakis's running mate. George reports that Jackson has threatened to have floor fights on all platform issues that he does not win, and to present his speech outside of the convention if he feels slighted by the party. George speculates on whether the delegates for each candidate will unite at the convention. George interviews Raymond Jordan (Dukakis delegate) and Saundra Graham (Jackson delegate) about their views of the convention. Jordan says that he is working to unite all Democrats behind Dukakis. Graham says that Dukakis must accommodate Jackson's platform to win his delegates. George's report includes footage of Dukakis and Lloyd Bentsen (U.S. Senator) at a press conference and footage of Dukakis campaigning. George's report also features footage of Jackson and footage of Dianne Feinstein (US Senator) at the 1984 Democratic National Convention.
