Today's Meredith Vieira Wonders if Obama has Been "Tipped Off" that Chicago will be Selected for 2016 Olympics - Video 9/28/09
Here is a video report on President Obama's decision to travel to Copenhagen, Denmark on Thursday to lobby for Chicago to be selected as the site for the 2016 Olympic Games.
Obama will be the first U.S. President to use his office to lobby for an Olympics decision by the International Olympic Committee. The decision is expected to be close between Chicago and Rio de Janeiro. First Lady Michelle Obama will head there first ahead of President Obama.
Today's Meredith Vieira speculated that someone has "tipped Obama off" that Chicago will be selected for him to decide at the last minute to go there.
NOTE: Is Vieira suggesting that Obama is making the trip because he knows Chicago will be selected and he wants to get all the credit for the decision? No, Obama would not be as crass a politician as that!
2nd Note: Obama is making Gen. McChrystal wait for weeks on a decision about troop reinforcements, but Obama has time to travel to Denmark and lobby for his hometown to get the Olympics. Nothing like getting your priorities straight.
