Yeah, sure, things can change in four years time. But again, I don't see things changing that much in places like Chicago & San Fran. There's too much red tape & opposition in these cities, not to mention that both of them would also have the major issue of where to put that damn Olympic stadium at. If in eight years Chicago still wasn't interested again, then I don't see how another four years (& technically, it would be just one more year from now if the USOC finds itself with a 2024 loss) is going to change anything of significance, especially when the city's challenges have gotten greater since the last time they bid. And no matter how many times the USOC can take a 'brief look', isn't going to 'change' that. As far as New York (& Philly), that could go either way, maybe. I asked you earlier to enlighten us on it, since you've cited many times before that the city's 2012 run was a "one & done" shot & that the city has "moved on". Is that still your view on it, even within the next year? If so, then I don't see what else the USOC can look at in any of these other four cities in the short-term (if need be).
