At the Democratic National Convention in Chicago who was chosen as the party's presidential nominee?
The Democratic National Convention in Chicago was a complete disaster. Robert F. Kennedy was also shot and killed, and that ruined the Democrats' chance of winning the election because he would have probably been nominated by the Party. Nixon won later on in November. 1968 wasn't really a good year for the U.S. ... Tet, MLK, RFK, Dem. Convention, LBJ doesn't go for re-election, and then Nixon.
