Why no news on other cities?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

It's been awfully quiet on the convention front. There has been no news of additional cities accepting an invitation to bid on the convention. What suprises me is that you would think most cities would want it public that they are going after the convention - See Denver and Orlando for examples. So why have there been no other news reports of cities accepting the invitation to bid for the convention?

While it's possible that the DNC will release a large list of cities at any time, making this all moot, until then, I wonder if maybe the list of cities that actually want to host the convention is rather small. Hosting political conventions has become a very difficult task, especially with the increased security that is now required. Is it possible that only two cities are even interested in hosting the convention?
