With that said can charlotte handle the possible influx of 1-3 million protesters? now theese type of protesters aka the tea party protesters are a peaceful bunch of folks so i would not expect any problems out of them its just where the heck would that many people go to protest near the center city where would they park their cars? ect.
sorry, but your figures are wrong. There were not 1.5 million folks in DC for the tea party events. ;-)

Regardless, Charlotte can't handle that many people flocking in and businesses would suffer.

But I think the perfect solution to demonstrate how competent our leadership is around here is to do something ignorant like hold the DEM convention here (or any other convention of that size). The ensuing mess would guarantee that this city figured out that competency trumps PR, hoopla, empty promises and Spin every time.

Some folks have to learn the hard way.
