Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel floated the idea Wednesday of naming one of Chicago’s airports after President Obama.
According to Politico:
When asked at a candidate forum at Chicago State University why he was no longer supporting his own proposal to name two high schools after Obama and influential religious and community leader Arthur Brazier, Emanuel said that he was still looking for ways to “acknowledge people who have done significant things.”
“We have an airport, two of them, you know, Midway Airport, O’Hare Airport,” Emanuel said. “[Obama and Brazier] are people who have been transformative in the city of Chicago. But we have airports named after battleships.”
Don’t smirk. Eventually, something named after Obama could be coming to a place near you.
