A dozen cities interested in the convention?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The Denver Post wrote today that "About a dozen other cities have some interest in hosting the convention", but I'd really be interested in seeing where they got that information from. Most cities are not talking, and the DNC says an official list of cities accepting an invitation to bid to host the 2008 Democratic Convention is not being released.

But in the same article, Dan Slater, vice-chairman of the Colorado state Democratic party, does say Orlando, New Orleans and Detroit are all at least mulling a bid. As stated below, there's been no news that either New Orleans or Detroit accepted the invitation to bid to host the convention, but I'm getting the feeling that a number of cities are interested in hosting - we just don't have any confirmation yet.
