Should we colonise Venus instead of Mars?

"Colonising" implies mass movement of people to the new place. I don't see mass movement being possible with current technology. A space elevator would help. And then, the fact that Venus is downhill would make it a lot easier to get to than Mars. We have a long way to go before we need to worry about floating cities.
