So, the Chicago politicians who have turned their city into a virtual sewer through corruption and cronyism will not be rewarded with the opportunity to do the same with the Olympics:
Despite four years, millions of dollars in planning and a last-ditch pitch from President Obama, the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid ultimately fell short.

A disappointed USOC President Larry Probst left the venue and refused to comment, saying the Chicago delegation would respond later.
