  •  I voted for Denver (none)
    But Denver, Detroit, and New Orleans are all good ideas that should be considered.

    I think we should pick a city with a Democratic mayor, because a Republican mayor has a potential ability to make us look bad, should they do something dumb at convention time. I'm not saying a Democratic mayor won't do something dumb. However, with the potential for things like "free speach zones" and protestors getting arrested, I don't think a Republican mayor is a good idea (seriously, if they were to arrest protestors at our convention and then call us hypocrites for whining about Bloomberg doing that at the Republican convention, it wouldn't look good).

    Along the same lines, I think Las Vegas and mayor Oscar "cut the thumbs off all the Vandals" Goodman has the potential to be a media disaster. If it's there, we should definitely keep him away from the media.
