5. Denver would be good
Edited on Wed Feb-08-06 06:19 PM by Ignacio Upton
Colorado is an emerging swing state. Although the conventions generally don't make a difference in the polls, I believe that in terms of symbolism they can bolster the party's image. I'm also glad that we are not going to have our convention first (which is a tradtion that the out-of-power party has normally followed) because when we did in 2004 it allowed for the Swift Boat Veterans to trash Kerry in the period between the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention. This is because Kerry accepted public financing that limited him to about $70 million and forced him to limit spending until Bush did the same after the his coronation among the GOP "statesmen."
