2008 GOP convention in Twin Cities

http://www.startribune.com/462/story/705262.html

Pretty excited for this to be in my home town.

We're still in the running for the DNC convention as well but I'd assume they wouldn't do both in the same city.

I hope every one of those drools was directed at Howard Dean. He says what's on his mind as any honest politician should.

Last major politcal convention in the Twin Cities was in 1892 (Harrison was nominated).

Nice strategic move for the GOP. Minnesota has been such a left-winged state for so long with great Democratic leaders like Humphrey, Mondale and Wellstone. But as the state's population has grown, so has its conservative base.

Wish it was the DNC instead....but it will be a good thing for the city.

I believe they will have to truck/fly/boat in the hookers, much like they had to do for the Vikings and their little boat cruise last year!

The republican party was VERY different at that time...same with the Democratic party...if I were alive in 1892 I doubt I would be a Democrat (at least not in the south).
