July 11, 1960: Kyle Palmer responds obliquely to James Reston's column: "The boss has not disappeared nor has the machine been discarded. These we shall have with us in one form or another as long as politics is as it is, and as long as a few politicians are gathered together."

On the jump, the agenda for the entire convention. Notice that nothing happens until late afternoon or early evening and compare it to the 2008 convention in Denver. In 1960, the opening session didn’t start until 5 p.m.  (8 p.m. on the East Coast) and the last session of the convention didn’t start until 7 p.m.  (10 p.m. on the East Coast). Those deadlines must have been fun.
