Subject: "Brokered Convention" Example

1924.. Democrats cannot find anyone with sufficient enough delegates at their convention to win the nomination process outright.

Smoke filled backrooms with political bosses of Democrat Party settling onto John W. Davis after two weeks and 104 ballots cast later on... Hot summer circumstances within smoke filled room choosing John W. Davis as some sort of sacrificial lamb.

Davis looses in November to Republican Calvin Coolidge. John W. Davis a weak candidate as some sort of compromised candidate for the Democrat Party nomination process.

There really was no real hope beating a favored Republican Calvin Coolidge in 1924 in the first place..

Is today's Democrats heading for a Brokered Convention this time around with all the upcoming infighting between Sander's forces and the regular establishment forces?
