And Meade's house. If Obama were here, wouldn't Air Force one be at the Dane co airport and wouldn't people have seen the limo's drive by? Seems like the public would notice.

The FAA flight restrictions on MSN don't go into effect until 1:30 am, so I would expect a pretty late arrival.

Don't worry; I'm sure he has the hotel room guaranteed on his credit card.

A question on the mechanics of this:

Does Springsteen go first and then Obama or does Obama go first?

If Obama is last, will people who just came to see Springsteen be allowed to leave or will they be forced to listen to Obama?

His schedule calls for him to arrive in Chicago at 2:20AM

If he is landing at O'Hare, I recommend the Candlewood Suites. Close by, nice rooms, great internet access, free laundromat and inexpensive.

Rooms were all redone earlier this year.

Also a free shuttle van to the airport if he needs it.

I stay there 10-15 nights a year and rate it 2 thumbs up.

I think John Henry was making a confused reference to the people who were prevented from leaving the Romney event the other day.

It will forever be a source of amusement to me that a guy who specializes in how not to waste time spends a good chunk of his day posting about politics on a forum in a city where he doesn't live, encouraging people to call him at work.
