You could call this a case of "better late than never."  The Democratic National Convention, kicking off today in Charlotte, is setting a record...for lateness.

FOX News Radio's Hank Weinbloom explains from Charlotte:

It used to be a rule of fashion that women don't wear white after Labor Day, and it used to be a rule in politics that the parties don't hold Presidential conventions after Labor Day.  Not this year.

The Democrats convene here in Charlotte to officially nominate their candidate after the traditional end of summer, when vacations are over and kids are back at school.  You can go all the way back to 1856, and you won't find a convention starting this late.

In fact, this convention bumps right into the start of the NFL season.  The opening game, Cowboys-Giants, is tomorrow night, the second night of the Democrats big game.

In Charlotte, Hank Weinbloom, FOX News Radio.
