IOC Eliminates Chicago: Ouch

The IOC dismissed Chicago -- the presumption was that between Obama's support and the sponsorship and rights-fee opportunities of a US-based Games, Chicago was the favorite.

It does no actual damage to Obama's standing, of course -- in the end, it's just the Olympics -- but you can bet plenty of political hay will be made about his inability to be a closer on this.

I was SURE that Obama never would have gone to Copenhagen if there wasn't an understanding that Chicago would be picked.
