It may be hard for those of us in Boston to believe, but the Democratic National Committee is on the verge of deciding in which city to hold the 2008 Democratic National Convention. And, believe it or not, there are cities that want the function, namely New York City and Denver. In my latest New York Sun piece, I argue that it will be best for the Democrats to go to a mountain state, such as Colorado. Given the chances that the Republican nominee will be either John McCain from Arizona or Mitt Romney, part of whose political pedigree includes Utah, a Western convention may give the Democrats the best shot to win states such as Arizona, Nevada and Colorado.
