Bucharest could certainly use them. I think Sofia, Belgrade or Bucharest should be next.

It is likely to become only the domain of the rich countries who can afford to host it. So you can forget about any African city with possible exception of Johanesburg South Africa. Also the host city needs massive, and reliable public transport infrastructure. That probably rules out most South American cities. Australia won't seriously consider a bid for at least another 30 years before it starts submitting cities to bid again. Even then the two main contenders for an Aussie bid would be either Brisbane (A rapidly growing sub-tropical metropolis) or Melbourne (Australia's traditional sporting capital, and host city of the 1956 Olympics).

A bid from Australia has to be backed by both State and Federal goverments (who will likely underwrite much of the costs) as well as get the blessing of the Australian Olympic Council.

Why not Cape Town? (ok, there are some reasons, crime and Aids crises). I can't think of a more capeable African city though. South Africa has a long and proud sporting culture. It is a beauty of a location and a nice city. SA will have learned much from the world cup on how to handle such huge events.

And SA is a great example of much racial and political strife over the last 50 years and has been a great example on how society (though imperfect) should go about moving on and improving with each other in relative peace and democracy. Can't beat that.

Right now, there is a joint bid being formed between Bogota-Caras-Lima for the 2016 or 2020 Summer Olympics, but I seriously think that Bogota should host the 2016 or the 2020 Summer Olympics because of the following:
1- It has a great mass transit system. the transmilenium is a pioneer and role model for many cities in latin america (specially central america), toronto, and a few other south american cities and all of the big colombian cities. it is used by 9 million people a day. it is the 1st or 2nd longest (i can't remember which) and it's bike path is the longest in the world.
2- it is a wealthy city with about 1/3 of colombia's gdp (1/3 of ~400 billion usd=~134 billion usd) and its standard of living is similar to that of many western european cities like london and paris.
3- It is a very environmentall conscious city.
4- It is a big city with a metro pop of ~9 million and will pass the 10 million mark by 2010.
5- It has hosted countless international forums (right now there are 2 or 3 forums going on and one is about prevetion of the h5n1 virus in the americas) and international sporting events of the western hemisphere.
6- it is one of the safest cities in the western hemisphere (even safer than Buenos Aires).

It seems that Cape Town and Rio are two of the favorites here that many would most like to see. They would be great first cities for their continents. Hopefully they can get overcome any crime issues either might have and could come up with the dough to put on a great games (which both are fully capeable).
