Olympic effort

I saw on ESPN.com that President Obama sent a letter in support of Chicago's effort to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.
I like Don Surber's links better. Especially the group Chicagoans for Rio 2016.
You can see why a president would like his hometown to get the Olympics. Presiding over an Olympics can help your popularity - I bet it helped Reagan in 1984 and Clinton in his 1996 reelection campaign.
I'm sure in 2016 Obama hopes to be ready to hand his job over to another Democrat. Unless something unexpected happens in 2012.
