They did make it into the final.... They lost the other time one on 1 vote before getting into the final. Which they would have won on the Francophone and LA votes.

Madrid has the best bid in these harsh financial times. Since when did Rio invent the games anyway?

There is no such rule as rotation of continent, plus London has nothing in comon with Madrid, completly different cities people and culture. I think Madrid's creative presentation was on point. But is true that Rio was the last city i wanted to go against if we got to the finals.

Do the Latin American members actually vote for Rio or for Madrid.

Tokyo was sure to go.
Any idea about how many votes Chicago or Tokyo got in the first & second rounds?

I would not bet against Rio now. The 1st games in South America is a massive factor. South Africa got the World cup as well.

What a shocker for Chicago. Kind of a lose/win for me as a Republican Chicagolander. If Chicago had won, the Obamas would not really have been able to claim the credit. The loss in the first round, after the Obamas reaped a week of vitriol from the right and even many in the political center in this country for wasting valuable time and resources, further weakens a President on a really bad losing streak.

Can't wait to hear the radio talk shows. They are going to have a field day with this.

Oh, btw, congrats to Rio who appears to have it sewn up.

Maybe, Madrid is a safe choice but an Olympic Game in South America will be far more exciting.

Madrid just rides the Barcelona 1992 games. Still the best games ever.
