We've just gotten two bits of good news!
1 - Chicago has been eliminated from consideration for the 2016 Olympics. YAY!
We don't want the second most politically-corrupt city (after New Orleans) getting it.
2 - President Obama met with General Stanley McChrystal briefly before leaving Copenhagen. YAY!
Despite last month being the deadliest in the middle east since we went there in 2002,
and despite Obama's loud insistence as a candidate that we need to listen to the commanders on the ground,
he has only met with his commander in Afghanistan (whom he appointed) ONCE in the past 70 days.
OK, now they have met twice.
Now Obama needs to approve the troops that McChrystal says we have to have to avoid losing the war...
