London or Paris?

Anyone who watched New York's bid press conference early this morning would know that New York hasn't a single chance to winning the bid. The chairperson was egotistic and frankly the sight of Hillary Clinton (yesterday) playing the 9/11 tragedy 'triumph card' in order to gain sympathy votes makes me want to puke. Thank god they are out.

Only London and Paris remains. I wouldn't mind London winning but all the circus activity created by the likes of David Beckham and Tony Blair sure soured my initial enthusiasm for the city's bid.
