More Obamaites to Copenhagen

More

It looks like Ray LaHood is the latest to join the delegation of Obamaites and Chicagoans going to Copenhagen for a final pitch to get the 2016 Summer Olympics for the windy city. I saw LaHood this morning for an interview and asked if the former congressman from Peoria, Illinois was getting involved in the pitch. He said that he was and would help reassure International Olympic Committee members that Chicago had the transportation infrastructure to handle the megaevent. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, the former superintendent of Chicago schools and an IOC member as well as First Lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey are going to Denmark as well. Will Chicago Goldwater Girl Hillary Clinton show up as well? I wouldn't be shocked.
