Are they differentiating this bid from 1994 enough, that's my main point? OK, so we get it'll be bigger, but is that enough for FIFA?

Also, some of the points don't sit well...it feels like they're overplaying the US' passion for football, it really does.

Otherwise, impressive. Clinton doing a superb job. Still such a persausive speaker. I like his point about FIFA being free to do more with the world cup than they could if they were worrying about building stadiums; very nice point that and perhaps the biggest differentiation from '94.

Another 8/10

Isn't hyperbole and overstating the facts what this stuff is all about? Believe me it's not just the US doing it.

Of course it is, and I'm probably being a little too picky, but just saying what I'm seeing.

Exactly, I mean it was a really good presentation. I don't think it would have cost that much to do either, unlike Qatar's totally useless videos. But what they were saying stemmed from hosting a world cup, so why shouldn't another nation be given the same opportunity, considering the US are still a developing football nation and have hosted a world cup 16 years ago? South Korea and Japan hosted 8 years ago, I mean it's just outrageous that those 2 bids are having a go honestly, no wonder the Japanese government went

They can make all this without the World Cup, to be honest.
