Meanwhile, in Chicago

Our new president is on record saying that if he weren't a politician, he'd like to have been an architect. But that's not enough for some people; enter idle speculation: "If Barack Obama were a building...what building would Barack Obama be?" One blogger has the answer in Chicago's John Hancock Building: "There is a refinement that the Hancock tower posseses for me, that reminds me of Obama. It's elegant and stately, like the statesman that he is. And somehow, you know that under that outer skin there is a core of heavy-duty steel that can't be messed with." Also, he's from Chicago.
