Cleveland: Home of the DNC Convention in 2012?

The New York Times asks the question:

As Bruce Springsteen, who is currently the subject of a special exhibit at Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, sang in “Badlands,” there’s “trouble in the heartland.” And a lot of political action as well, which could bode well for the Buckeye State’s bid to land the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

Cleveland is one of four cities competing to host the Democratic gathering. Charlotte, N.C., Minneapolis, Minn., and St. Louis, Mo. are the other possibilities, with a decision possible by the end of the year. At the moment, Ohio seems to be scoring points in terms of buzz.

One wonders how this would work if the polls turn out to be correct and John Kasich becomes governor.
