Prediction: DNC to Charlotte in 2012

My former John Locke Foundation colleague Jeff Taylor says that is the likely result of Missouri’s vote this week in opposition to ObamaCare:

Lock it down folks. I think the only really serious comp for Charlotte’s bid to host the DNC gala in 2012 has just been taken off the board by Missouri voters. When 70 plus percent of a state’s voters rebuke the signal policy of an incumbent president — you tell me how likely it is that the nominating convention for that president’s second term comes to town. In this case, St. Louis.

The other finalists are Minneapolis and Cleveland. The speculation is that RNC went to the Twin Cities in ’08 so they are out, and Cleveland ain’t ready.

That the DNC’s best option is to go to a huge banking city hammered by the subprime blunders of Bank of America and Wachovia, with a current unemployment rate of 11.1 percent, is not a good early sign.
