"A Happening in Grant Park"

This just in...

"Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign will hold what it hopes will be an Election Night celebration in Grant Park in Chicago, a campaign aide confirmed this morning.

"The large public space between the Loop and lakeshore also hosted a papal visit in 1979 and a Chicago Bulls NBA championship celebration in 1991. It more routinely host open-air concerts, sporting events and the Taste of Chicago.

"The Obama aide said logistical details such as whether attendees will need to register online or obtain a ticket in advance are still being worked out and will be announced in the coming days.

"The Obama event is expected to take place on the south end of the park in an area known as Hutchison Field."

You so wish you lived in Chicago now, don't you?

Well, bring it on, baby! Come to Chicago and celebrate as Sen. Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States.

And if for some heinous reason, McCain wins, we can convoy up to Canada together.
