Honolulu Dukes it out With Chicago for Obama Library

Here's a David and Goliath story for you, which I predict that David will probably win in a walk.

HONOLULU — As President Barack Obama prepares to battle with Republicans for a second term, another fight is already brewing: where to enshrine his legacy once he leaves office.

The effort to play host city to Obama’s presidential library is being complicated by the peripatetic life he has had. His diverse background — a fixture of his political brand — is now fueling a debate at a time when the White House would like to focus on anything but where to store the Obama archives.

Chicago gave Obama his start in politics. Illinois is where his political career began. Chicago is the home town that he avoids whenever he can in favor of going to Hawaii.

Barack likes going to Hawaii. Barack can barely tolerate the thought of spending time in Chicago. Winner? I predict Hawaii, hands down.
