I'm not doubting that (and you know better than I do when it comes to politics), but it hasn't been going very well with the "D's" in office. That's all I know. Maybe a change would be good. But we all know what happens when a good number in this city are confronted with change.
Who knows, maybe with a "R" the IOC would have gone through? I really can't say it would have gone through and I really can't say it would not have. All I know is that it did not and the politicians in this state seem to be on their way to screwing up this franchise and this city.
