AFP's prose may be purple (you know how those French are), but to be fair it's not just AFP that doesn't like brokered conventions, it's DNC Chair Howard Dean. Dr. Dean is quoted as saying, "I think we will have a nominee sometime in the middle of March or April. But if we don't, then we're going to have to get the candidates together and make some kind of an arrangement. Because I don't think we can afford to have a brokered convention -- that would not be good news for either party."

Personally, I'm all in favor of the Democratic Convention coming down to a battle of the superdelegates. I just hope the party's vaunted commitment to openness permits us to see all the machinations, arm-twisting and backroom deals. What entertainment for an otherwise dull summer rerun season!
