Also, the chances of another European country getting the games in 2016 are rather slim. Better to have put another city like Delhi instead of Copenhagen.

The IOC asked Mexico to do a bid, then Guadalajara, Monterrey and San Diego-Tijuana will compete to be the candidate.

Well seeing as how we will be feeling the pinch of this financial crisis we are in well into the next decade San Diego will need Tijuana to take a bit of the financial burden for costs associated with hosting an olympics. Personally I don't know if it would be a good investment for the city. By 2016 will the Olympics really be that big of a deal anymore?

Think about it, the prominence of the Olympic Games has really been falling off over the last 12 years. San Diego is such a NIMBY filled city that shies away from large public projects that I don't see our citizens fully backing all of the large construction projects it takes to pull the games off. Where would they put the Olympic Village? There is no land left? Maybe out in Ramona or Alpine.

They sound like good bets.

With Mo Rush's support for London 2012 I'd support an SA bid.

I don't want Istanbul. Because it loses all nominees. I won't give hope to Istanbul. My hometown is better than Istanbul. Maybe Dubai.

If Tokyo is in the running, I would prefer to see it over any other Asian/ Middle Eastern city. For Africa, I would support a Cape Town bid. For North America, I would like to see either Montreal or New York City. And for Europe, either madrid or Rome would be nice but I don't think Europe will get the 2016 games. And for South America, Buenos Aires would be nice.
