Not very long more,for decision day on Oct 2nd.

42 days more only for all sponsors/supporters of Olympid Bids, to make their work felt.

I doubt that Ishihara will still be around in 2016. And even if he were, his views would have no bearing whatsoever on the decision. The IOC has dealt with all sorts of repressive regimes from Moscow in 1980 to Beijing in 2008, so I hardly think they will base the decision on whether Tokyo's governor is popular with the foreign community or not.

Those folks in USA know how to move people via rock songs. Ain't that America more than something to see and hear musically.

Games at USA in 2016,should rock for all nations.

XD? You think Chicago is getting anything? Yeah right. Not until they fix the "kids getting repeatedly killed in shootings" problem....um the gang problem, the drug problem, budget problem...are there more to mention?

Yeah Chicago isn't getting anything. we all know california isn't getting squat anytime soon. with thier budget problems. maybe if north korea goes good we can all pull a Beijing and host it in Pyonyang. :D IMO, we should have it in a neutral place......hmmmm antartica is the only continent that hasn't gotten an olympics. lol XD. the chaos that would be.

heres a better idea. give to taiwan just to make china mad. heres a even better idea. have it in israel. XD. hmmm has Egypt ever had an olympics? lol have the opening ceremony inside the great sphynx
