You can’t blame Democrats for wanting to look ahead to 2012.

The Democratic National Committee set a date Monday for their next national party convention — the week of Sept. 3, 2012 — where they will re-nominate President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden. Now they just need to pick a place.

The Republican National Committee announced in February that it is choosing between Salt Lake City, Phoenix and Tampa, Fla., for its 2012 convention venue. The GOP convention will take place the week of Aug. 27.
