Obama and Chicago 2016

On Tuesday, Obama announced the creation of a "White House Olympics office" which will lobby for Chicago 2016.

I wrote in April about some of the reasons Chicago 2016 is a bad idea, and how Obama should see the light and not lobby for it (he could go through the motions without actually pushing too hard).

Kenneth Vogel of Politico has some good detail on the Administration's connection with the Chicago 2016 folks. It turns out there's a lot of overlap, most notably Valerie Jarrett. Yuck.
