If a Democrat is going to win the 2008 Presidential election, they will have to win a significant portion of the West.  Although once solidly a red portion of the country, Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West are rapidly trending blue.  Holding the Convention in Denver will demonstrate that Democrats are serious about reaching out to Western voters.

Denver is the perfect Convention city.  It offers a tremendous variety of affordable lodging, dining, and transportation options that makes it an ideal destination for Convention travelers.  Downtown Denver boasts nearly 8,000 hotel rooms that are within walking distance, from 50 steps to eight blocks, of Denver's Pepsi Center, where the Convention will be held.

Selecting the Mile High City would be a major step forward for the Democratic Party in our efforts to win back the White House in 2008.
