We can certainly make too much of Pres. Obama's failure to sway the Olympic committee in Chicago's favor, but it's not something we can completely ignore.
Before and after the election we were told that Mr. Obama would be able to bring about world peace — turning our enemies into friends and healing wounds of every sort — by his eloquent words and the power of his presence.
Now we know he can’t even get the Olympics to Chicago. Not much hope for Iran, NKorea, or Russia.
