In support of Chicago's bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, President Obama will travel to Copenhagen later this week to meet with the International Olympic Committee. The New York Times reports that this will be the first time in history an American president has attended the International Olympic Committee vote.  The other three cities competing for the spot are Madrid, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.  The winner will be announced at 12:30 pm on Friday.
