Does Obama's Win Give Chicago An Edge In Olympic Bid?

That would make for a pretty busy time in Chicago with the election at that time too. If the term "Second City" actually stood for what people think it does, then I would say, Chicago is no second city anymore.

In case some, with the new attention on Chicago, wonder where the term Second City comes from, let's just say it has nothing to do with NY. I know for New Yorkers, it is hard to handle something not involving you, but you will get by.
After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 destroyed a third of the city, including the entire central business district, Chicago experienced rapid rebuilding and growth.[11] Ever since the city was rebuilt, it became known as the Second City, since the first city was largely destroyed in the Fire.
