4 Finalists for Site of Democratic Convention

The DNC has narrowed the list of choices for its 2012 convention to four cities: St Louis, Cleveland, Charlotte and Minneapolis. Frankly, I am surprised only one Ohio city appears on the list.

I went to law school in St. Louis (Yay Wash U!) and lived there for 6 years. It seems an odd choice to me for the 2012 convention. It is so much different than the other 3. Now that I live relatively close to the location of the last convention, it seems even odder to chose St, Louis as Denver's successor.

Well, Missouri is such a bellwether -- like Ohio. I can see it being held there. Obama lost the state by a hair. It is clear that they feel they are suffering in the heartland.

I was thinking more about how it is a bit deserted within the city limits and there are far to many abandoned buildings and homes. Everyone basically lives in the suburbs. Your way of looking at it makes much more sense.

But, if that is the intent, it seems to be a better idea to choose Kansas City. St. Louis is the one blue part of the state.

They are suffering in the heartland, and anywhere else Fox News is popular. Sadly, when the opposition refuses to be bound by facts and the truth and their audience refuses to listen to anything other than the lies, it is almost impossible to persuade that audience away from their beliefs.

The sad effects of a decision in a Florida court 7 years ago spreading its influence nationwide.
