L. Sandy Maisel looks at the ways in which the two major party platforms were crafted in 1992, noting differences between them in terms of both process and final product. Despite differences, however, both party processes produce candidate platforms, not party platforms, and thus give a good indication of directions of the president's postelection policy initiatives.
