Obama To Give Kanye West A Second Chance

President Barack Obama is traveling to Copenhagen this Friday to try and sway Olympic officials towards selecting Chicago as the site for the 2016 games.

This makes Obama the first U.S. President to meet with Olympic officials for such a purpose. British Prime Minister Tony Blair was the first world leader to make such a visit which resulted in London winning the bid to host the Games in 2012. Putin followed suit and Sochi, Russia is now preparing to host the 2014 Winter Games.

Chicago is up against Madrid, Tokyo, and Rio de Janeiro for the selection. Many see Rio as a front runner as it would become the first South American city to do such but others are hoping Obama's visit will change that.

Could there be more to the President's visit than simply getting the Olympics to his adopted hometown? Could this be an attempt by Obama to give Kanye West a second chance to wow the world? West, a Chicago native, would either perform at the Games closing ceremony or would jump into the stadium during the Smashing Pumpkins performance.

But seriously, I hope Chicago gets it because if West performed, it would be da bomb. And imagine Michael Jordan and Oprah too. It would almost be as cool as London's closing ceremony is going to be (Paul McCartney! The Rolling Stones! Elton John! Coldplay! The possibilities are endless). And unfortunately, I don't think Obama cares about West performing. After all, he says he's a jackass...
