Midterm impacts

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Colorado Democrats won the two races they were expected to win, and lost the two races that were more difficult, which in my mind doesn't change the state of the competition to host the 2008 Democratic National Convention. But as I noted below, the Boston Globe reported that some Western Democrats believe that Denver should win the competition now that Colorado elected a Democratic governor. And the Rocky Mountain News says the decision could come earlier rather than later:

Colorado's standing as a political keystone of the West could rise even higher after the election. Denver could hear this week whether it will host the 2008 Democratic political convention.
I can't imagine Dean would step on the Democrat's great news cycles this week, but there's no doubt that at this point a decision could come anytime between now and the springtime.

I think you're right! I think Governor Dean will select just the right time to make the announcement.

GooOOo Denver!! :o)
