Rio 2016

I’m happy for Rio, but I feel bad for Obama. First he says that he won’t travel to Copenhagen to push for Chicago because his hands are full with the health care battle.

Then he changes his mind, and joins Michelle and Oprah (!) at International Olympic Committee meeting to campaign for his adopted home city.

I thought his visit would clinch the Chicago victory, and Oprah would send it hurtling over the finish line.

I’m glad that South America will finally host the Olympics. But I may have to reassess the world’s opinion of Obama…and Oprah.
