Undefined term: "unit rule"[edit]

What is the "unit rule," mentioned in the description of the second day of balloting? Does it require all of a State's delegates to vote as a unit? That should be clarified.

Expansion / Klanbake article[edit]

Why isn't Klanbake merged into this article? I think that makes more sense than its expansion. Fearwig 07:19, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Support The Klanbake concept is a nickname for one aspect of the 1924 convention. There seems to be no justification or benefit to have it as a separate article. Alansohn (talk) 11:51, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Pathsetted[edit]

What does "pathsetted" mean? I've never even heard the word. --Hamiltonian 12:15, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Wholesale copied materials being used without citations[edit]

I don't know much about adding citations, but the sections of text that discuss the various ballot results ("First ballot, fifteenth ballot", etc.) are copied word for word from: David Burner, The Politics of Provincialism: The Democratic Party in Transition, 1918 – 1932. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1968, pages 120 - 124. Definitely NOT original research; more like plagiarism!

Also, the link to reference #1 does not work anymore.
