Chicago already won the competition when it made a greater impact on his political development than any of the other cities in play. The library (and the moneys that come with it) belongs in Chicago. I don't think it's an overstatement to say that anything else would be a betrayal. Plus, after 9/11 and the Recession, NYC is flush with federal dollars. (The WTC transit hub/Calatrava boondoggle/white elephant carcass alone cost $4 billion.)
