Hotel assignments: Winners, Losers, and then there's Florida

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

With the assignment of hotels to the state delegations, I needed someone local to interpret the results, and Colorado Confidential has the winners and losers:

Winners: New York, California, Colorado (big surprise), Vermont (another big surprise for Dean's home state), New Mexico, Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio
Losers: Alaska, Nebraska, Delaware, Hawaii

And what about Florida, whose delegates, if they ever get any delegates, are homeless at the present? An emailer notes that the Grand Hyatt, where the Colorado delegation, and as of now only the Colorado delgation, is staying, is a large hotel, and has lots of rooms left over after the Colorado rooms are set aside. Very interesting...
