Democratic National Convention: Timing is everything

Frank Rich notes:

For all the fears of a Democratic civil war, the planets may be aligning for a truce, and possibly a celebration. As fate has it, the nominee’s acceptance speech is scheduled for the night of Aug. 28, exactly 45 years after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. electrified the nation with “I Have a Dream.”

Now there's rhetorical hay just waiting to be made.

Or, if you prefer, it's a 234-year-old promissory note finally being honored.
