CSPAN Video 16: Republican Party Platform, 2008, Discussed

This CSPAN video clip is from September 1, 2008.  Representative Kevin McCarthy, R-California, 22nd District, and Senator Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, discuss the 2008 Republican Party platform. Rep. McCarthy calls it the most "open and transparent" platform yet; Sen. Burr discusses consensus building.  The ratification of the platform is also discussed.  This video gives interesting insight into the platform creation process.  Noteworthy: Immigration was a key issue in the '08 Republican Party platform.
