Obama library battle: Chicago vs. Hawaii

David Jackson, USA TODAY
9:46a.m. EST December 26, 2012

The battle is on for part of President Obama's legacy: The presidential library.

The University of Chicago and the University of Hawaii -- schools from Obama's home city and his birth state -- have expressed interest in hosting the library that will hold records from President Obama's administration.

Every president since Herbert Hoover has sponsored a library; the George W. Bush library is scheduled to be dedicated next year in Dallas.

What the heck does Chicago need another library for?

1. Going to have to side with Chicago. Otherwise I'll never see it.

I can't afford Hawaii. But Chicago is right in the damn middle of it all.

3. I VOTE HAWAII

 

The man is hawaiian, the man grew up in Hawaii.

Chicago has other stuff, but this is Hawaii's own to take for the future. I just do not know where they would place it?

This NOR CAL dude has visited this state many times.
