Democrats Cut Convention to Three Days

In addition to announcing that President Obama would deliver his acceptance speech at Bank of America stadium, Democrats also said that they were shortening the convention from four days to three.

First Read: "This change will have a lasting repercussion. We likely won't ever see four-day conventions any more. Also, given that they have just three days to work with, Democrats have a potential primetime scheduling challenge on their hands. How do you find three days to fit in primetime speeches by Obama, the first lady, the vice president, the keynote speaker, and Bill Clinton (who you know will want to receive speaking time)?"
