  •  I think picking Nola is tacky (none)
    It looks blatantly opportunistic.  Let the GOP go there and make W give his "when you remember me" speech from there.

    For McCain to make his "we can do better" speech from there and see if the base of Bushlovers stays with him.

    Go to Denver, Phoenix, one of the Texas cities ("We're taking the fight to the heart of Dubya/DeLay country!")

    Go to Minneapolis for the "Draft Franken" movement. (Just kidding.)

    Do not go to Nola.  That is all.

    •  It IS opportunistic (none)
      But really, the symbolism outweighs the opportunism.

      Remember, Bush had his 2004 convention on the graves of the victims of the WTC attack.  And it didn't cost him much, and gained him a lot.
