Rumor: Announcement Thursday. Reality: Not likely

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

There's a rumor going around that the convention site will be announced later today (Thursday). But others think this is unlikely, as it would step on new Colorado Governor Bill Ritter's first week, as he was inaugurated on Tuesday and has his first state-of-the-state speech today. Now, if the winner was going to be New York, Bill Ritter's activities wouldn't matter too much, now would it?

Update: Guess those rumors were pretty solid!

If the answer is New York, it might dampen the mood of Ritter's speech considerably - I think it's equally troublesome to Ritter if the Democrats pick New York.

On the other hand, if Ritter could give his state of the state speech on the heels of the announcement that Colorado is about to have its first major political celebration in 100 years...

That might be unrealistic, wishful thinking, but I don't know how Dean could possibly go for New York City at this point.

The DNC will make an announcement within the hour that Denver has been selected.
