Today In No Kidding: Obama Confirms Copenhagen Trip

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Sep 28, 2009 2:00PM

This morning, the Obama administration confirmed what was reported last week and what we all knew, deep-down, was going to happen: Obama will make an appearance in Copenhagen ahead of the IOC vote for the 2016 Olympics. Every media outlet is reporting this morning on Obama's trip - and if you're expressing surprise at this announcement, let me know because I've got some magic beans to sell you - and it appears as if the trip will be a quick one. Obama will leave Thursday evening to arrive in Copenhagen just ahead of Friday's final bid presentation (Friday morning in Denmark) and be back Friday afternoon D.C. time. Mayor Daley left bright and early this morning for Denmark where some members of the Chicago 2016 team have been since last week.
