    • New Orleans
    • Denver
    • New York

    I want to hold the DNC in NOLA as a soapbox and as an emblem on the failure of the past eight years of the Bush administration. The Republicans used Detroit in their 1980 convention to bash the failed urban plans/policies of the Carter administration. I want New Orleans to represent all that the Bushadmins stood for: corruption, incompetence, domestic chaos and utter disregard/contempt for reality.

    Denver because Colorado could swing our way in 2008 and NYC for the selfish reason as I live in Brooklyn and I want to attend.

    I want the Democratic nominee to say somewhere in his/her acceptance speech before the balloons and confetti to fall

    My fellow Americans, are you better off now than you were eight years ago?

    And by 2008, I am certain many will be saying "no".
