i don´t care about this election, because german city will have no chance to win the election
it will be a decicion between Paris, New York and maybe Toronto
(Toronto depends on the Winter-Games 2010, because if Vancouver win, then Toronto has no chance and will most likely not bid)
i hope Leipzig will get at least "short-listed" because there are few other strong cities
like Madrid, Moscow, Istanbul, maybe Capetown, maybe London, maybe Budapest. to get a "official Candidate City" would be already a nice result for Leipzig.
i´m sure we will see another german bid 2016, and if german really want the games we will see a bid for 2020 too. because i´m sure the loser between Paris and New York will bid for 2016 too.
