    we don't own rhode island the way we need to so maybe providence is the place....of course i have no idea if they could accomodate such an event.anyhow i am ok with using the event to build a broader coalition of states. something in arizona maybe? but i like you point, let's at least credit where it is due. it seemed to me kos was taking a shot a the big money players in nyc because they have backed some folks he doesn't like ( loserman, etc. ). this is not helpful.

      This is the 2008 presidential convention we're talking about, not the Chafee-Whitehouse senate race. I don't need a crystal ball to know Rhode Island is going to vote for a Democrat for president in 2008. ;-)

      The Northeast in general is a region we already do quite well in. That doesn't mean we should slack off there in local and Congressional elections--just the contrary, I think the northeast is the key to taking back the House this year. But as far as the presidential election is concerned, we have to expand our appeal. The southwest would be another good region to push into, but no bid was submitted from a southwestern city. The upper midwest (where Minneapolis-St. Paul is located) and the mountain west (where Denver is located) would both be great places to plant a flag. New York's already on our side, at that level.
