Default Who should host the 2012 Olympics?

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...cs_oilspill_dc

As that article will tell you, New York isn't doing too well.

Im from thestates but London would be a nice place to have it. It is beatiful and not like grimy looking like my birth-city(NY). Moscow would also be a neat place.

All the checnians would cause too much problems in moscow. I vote for London since I think it would be cool there.

Im not really fond of New York. Nor any of the other places on that list.

Not Moscow or Madrid. Certainly not Paris.

I would say New York.

You should read the article. Their chances are slim.

I find Yahoo stories to be disturbing They are written by the commie LIbs over at Reuters. I would believe a word they said so i refuse to read it.

Sad. I want it to take place in a country that supports the US, so London is a different answer.

New York is too urban. Moscow is too rural. Paris has nice sights, but government might be a problem. London has good sights too. But, I'm not sure about Madrid.

Madrid is nice. If the socialists are out of power by 2012, maybe.. but since Zapatero is stupid, it shouldn't take place there.
