The Dukakis Perspective

This article is more than 12 years old.

Michael Dukakis knows a thing or two about conventions and presidential elections.

20 years ago, he was the Democratic Party's candidate for president. Dukakis ultimately lost that race to George H. W. Bush.

For one view of what this year's Democratic ticket — Barack Obama and Joe Biden — need to do from here on out, WBUR's Bob Oakes turns to Michael Dukakis.

The former Massachusetts Governor has been out in Denver for the Democratic National Convention.

This program aired on August 29, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
