barry to the rescue!!!
Just as planned. As if 48 hours was going to matter in the “healthcare debate”. He waited to see how close it was going to be and wanted it announced how close it would be so he could be the deciding factor. Wonder how Oprah feels? Did Mayor Daley remind barry how he got where he is? Or was it barry’s little buddy Nicolas Sargozy endorsing Rio?
Leaves Thursday night
IOC meets Friday
Return Friday night
He’s not going to woo IOC members – he’s just going to be there for the announcement.
Also going: FLOTUS, Valerie Jarrett, Mayor Daley, Gov Pat Quinn (said he was paying his own way), Pat Ryan, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan (Chicagoan), Secy of Transportation Ray LaHood and of course Oprah Winfrey.
26 Olympic athletes are going – EXCLUDING Michael Jordan.
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama symbolize the hope, opportunity and inspiration that makes Chicago great, and we are honored to have two of our city’s most accomplished residents leading our delegation in Copenhagen.
