World Sees Chicago in a New Light

I spoke about this with some of my friends yesterday, but Phil Hersch is a much better journalist then I am, so check out his blog post on the Chicago Tribune. This mainly deals with the impact of Obama and how it will help Chicago 2016 (again, I've covered this extensively since we started). Here is one of many great point he makes about last nights rally:
"The image that can be most lasting is that of a multi-ethnic, multi-racial, ecumenical gathering in Grant Park Tuesday night, when the people of Chicago created, brief as it may have been, a living tableau of the often battered Olympic ideals. The secret is out."
