President Barack Obama delivered a stirring swan song to the Democratic National Convention last night, reminding the audience at the close of his speech that he’s "ready to pass the baton and do my part as a private citizen." Well, at least a private citizen who has his own library. Chicago had already been picked as the host city (sorry, New York), but President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama have reportedly selected Jackson Park, on Chicago’s South Side, as the future home of the library and presidential center.
