The right choice. How many times have the Yanks had it? Asia had the last one and Europe is having 2012 so if geograpical rotation was the idea, which I certaily agree with as it's an event for the entire world, there was only one possible choice from those 4. Glad they made the right one.

Was rooting for Madrid because it's nearer to where I live.  :p

Chicago getting eliminated first was quite a shock. Apparently, there's a rift between the USOC and the IOC (article), so any US candidate will probably be out of the bidding loop for a while.

Here's the official vote tally:



Landslide win!
