I'm happy to help but not to lead.

PyCon 2009 has already been decided for Chicago in the interest of
maintaining stability and reusing this year's effort.  If we're
interested in PyCon 2010 we should probably have a bid ready by mid-2008.

I've just sent off e-mail to the PyCon committee suggesting that the bid
process for 2010 be announced this year at PyCon 2008.
