The Advanceman: Story of The Flag at the Convention

This evening, John Kerry formally becomes the Democratic candidate for president. And standing on the convention floor will be long-time democratic political operative, Jon Haber. Haber is a political advanceman -- the person behind the scenes who makes sure large events go off without a hitch. In the second of commentaries for NPR, Haber looks back on another Democratic convention when the lingering issue of Vietnam and the American flag played a role in the festivities.
