Philadelphia Seen as Frontrunner for Democratic Convention

"One of five cities bidding for the Democratic National Convention, Philadelphia appears to hold an early edge with a track record of hosting the major gathering -- not to mention that Hillary Rodham Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden have family ties to the state," the AP reports.

"The original U.S. capital and now the nation's fifth largest city, Philadelphia touts its historical significance. It has hosted the presidential nominating convention seven times since 1856, most recently the Republican one in 2000."
