Our panelists have covered their fair share of conventions. Between the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions, we asked them which was their most memorable convention. John Harwood, of CNBC and the New York Times, tells us why the 1988 Republican National Convention, with George H.W. Bush announcing Dan Quayle as his running mate made it one of the more dramatic conventions.
