Chicago 2016

I find it disconcerting that Obama is in Copenhagen right now to help pitch Chicago. Nine months in. I marvel at the energy, but am increasingly convinced his administration lacks focus. . . economic growth, Afghanistan, financial market reform, Iraq, health care, Iran, global warming, the Middle East, Africa, education reform. . . tell me when to stop.

Turns out when it comes to heads of state lobbying for the Olympics, there is precedent. Blair successfully pitched London. I won’t be surprised if Obama helps tilt the balance Chicago’s way, but truth be told, I think it would be more fun to watch the Rio games.
