In a conversation with the NewsHour’s Steve Goldbloom, senior correspondent Gwen Ifill mulls the media frenzy over vice-presidential picks and outlines what she’ll be looking for at the upcoming party conventions in Denver and Minneapolis.
“I’m one of those people who finds conventions to be kind of romantic affairs. I like the idea that people who care about their country, who care about involvement can come to a place, gather together and get emotional and concerned about who’s going to be the next leader of the free world. I like that idea,” Ifill said about the conventions.
