Jonathan Bernstein
  • University of Texas at San Antonio
Published Online: 2004-03-18 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1540-8884.1029

Professor Bernstein looks back at this year's Democratic presidential nomination, and discusses the implications for the future of the nominating system. Among the interesting aspects of the 2004 cycle he comments on: the demise of the winner of the invisible primary, Howard Dean; the decisions by Dean and nominee John Kerry to opt out of public financing; and the ability of Democrats to rapidly converge on a nominee after the surprising results of the Iowa caucuses.
