(AP) CHICAGO Thanks but no thanks.

That's Chicago's answer to an invitation to submit a bid to host the 2008 Republican National Convention.

The Republican National Committee said yesterday that Chicago and 30 other cities were selected to submit bids explaining why they'd be a good choice to host the 2008 convention.

But a spokeswoman for Mayor Richard Daley says City Hall isn't interested.

Jackie Heard says city officials are more focused on whether to pursue a campaign to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Chicago hosted the Democratic National Convention in 1996.

Purely as a spectator, I think. I'm off all week from work and will be downtown for college graduation. Maybe I'll treat myself to a Euro hottie for a graduation pressie. :lol:

Mmmm, Venezuelan soccer boys... Those kind seem to get me in trouble. [/Manuel flashback]. Yeah we should hangout. Not sure what events I'll go to. Depends on weather, but most likely beach volleyball stuff. I love a tall boy in dirty sand. :lol:
