We don't know who it'll be, but the Democratic nominee for president in 2008 will go forth from the Mile High City.

The Democrats plan to hold their convention in Denver, which hasn't hosted a Democratic convention since 1908. It's expected to attract about 35,000 people to the city in the last week of August.

The Republican convention will follow the next week in Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The Democratic National Committee invited 35 cities to apply to host the convention. Eleven did, and the committee today informed party and local officials it would be Denver.
