Rio(well, Brazil) is currently the only city bidding for the 2014 World Cup, if they win that, which they undoubtably will, it will put pressure on their 2016 bid, if they even continue the bid. The 2014 WC decision is in July I believe, that will give Rio time to back out of their 2016 bid before the official bid paperwork is due (Sometime in September I believe?). Rio is the only real competition for Chicago. So it will be interesting to see what happens.

About Anti-Americanism, there will be a new president by then, good chance of it being Obama, who is the Illinois state senator, who has already shown and offered support for the Chicago 2016 olympics. He will undoubtably improve our image.

I am pretty confident Chicago will win. But who knows.

You act as though 2016 is tomorrow. 9 years is a very long time. Hopefully by then, the ravaged image that the US has right now will be repaired and President Obama will open the Chicago Olympic games.

And Europe has had the most Olympic games. Summer and winter. FYI.

Anyone should know that not every American is evil as George W. Bush (US president) does. Not every American vote for him. I hope USA will get better after 2008 election and George W. Bush will be out of the office for good. Obama or Hilary Clinton might be our next US president depending on election result.

I know that Chicago will be great city to host an Olympic games. Go Chicago!

Well i dont think things Change so Much over a 10 year period...They not gonna build a whole city center and a mass Transportation in only 10 years(becuase a great amount of funds are needed) besides The World Olympic Comitte Sees the present and How thing will be in 2009 and not about how is going to be 2016!

^That's what I was saying to that guy. There are plenty of projects in the pipeline such as LA Live and Grand Avenue. Those are to remake Downtown Los Angeles completely.

That's because Madrid should have won the 2012 bid, the fact that an IOC member didn't vote in time...
Madrid deserves it, but rotation policy...

Since when? Before I left LA metro area, they just opened new subway line to Hollywood from downtown LA (I think). It wasn't much of public transit at that time. When will these new lines open?

Uhhh, that subway line opened in the late '90s. Projects like LA Live and Grand Avenue have been around for quite some time now. As for rail, the Gold Line extension to East LA will open in 2009 and the Expo Line to Culver City will openin 2010. The second phase of the Expo Line to Santa Monica will be completed in 2013.

That's good process. When will LA rail reaches Ventura county, Orange county or Riverside county or Long Beach?
