I think if Oslo stays in they will be pretty much handed it. If they drop out then Kazakhstan. This would be almost like a home games for Rus so you will hear Rus si ya chants
I would love to see the games in Kazakhstan, though. Denis Ten has done a good job with his shows there. Such a country, I also want to visit Kazakhstan.

I live in Kraków, Poland and my city wanted to bid but unfortunately we had a referendum and people decided against it because they think it's not worth spending so much money and the investment won't repay.
I just think the games have become too big.
My favourite games were probably Calgary and Lillehammer, when there were far fewer events.
The IOC seems obsessed with expanding the programme - I thought that things had turned the corner when baseball/softball were dropped from 2012 but no, they immediately added another 2 sports again.
I think its time for bids to look at the resources they have rather than what they can build. With a lack of cities hoping to bid, it is the perfect time for an American city with infrastructure and support in place that just needs a jump-start. Detroit would be perfect. Rather than focusing on infrastructure, focus on crime and getting the city to where it once was.
Most Olympic skiers don't want to ski on landfills. I like the concept of saving a dying city although don't sell Detriot short. It's growing in very very unique ways. I'm thinking Reno/Tahoe. In all honesty for the foreseeable future it would make sense just to revisit past venues and cut costs that way.
