U.S. President Barack Obama plans to usher in what he hopes will be a second four-year term in the White House at an election-night rally at a huge convention center near downtown Chicago, campaign and city officials said on Wednesday.
The event will likely draw thousands of supporters to the McCormick Place convention center in Chicago, Obama's hometown and the site of his re-election campaign headquarters.
Supporters are expected to watch the voting results come in and then hear a speech by the incumbent Democrat who faces Republican Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor and private equity executive, in the Nov. 6 general election.
Some 240,000 revelers flooded Chicago's 319-acre (129-hectare) Grant Park in the city's central business district on the night Obama beat John McCain in 2008 to become the first black U.S. president.

This may be where he bunkers down as his field generals issue the orders to riot. I am hoping for a concession speech by 9 pm.
Good he’ll be back in his made up thug home town WHERE HE CAN JUST STAY after his concession speech rally at 10:30 if America will just fire his sorry, loser anti-American ass!
Or preparing for his concession speech rather at this present rate.
Perfect place for him to create ground zero for riots.
The biblical phrase 'wailing and gnashing of teeth' comes to mind.
Robert McCormick would have hated Obama even more than he hated FDR.
By the end of the the next debate, it’ll be moved to the Conference Room of the Quality Inn in Joliet.
The video feed from an empty convention center strewn with the remains of torn and discarded Obama posters, and the tear-stained cheeks of a few dumbstruck communists, would fill my heart with transcendent joy.
All it will take is one spark. Chicago, Detroit , Memphis et al are powder kegs , if he loses, this is ground zero for ignition.
Precisely what I was thinking. The good news is that they'll all be in one place to be rounded up and arrested so they can be put on trial for TREASON against America.
Don't you DARE send that POC out here to Will County where I live!
BTW, by the time the election's over, I doubt he'll be able to fill even that room! (I've seen it. Honest.)
I’ve been to McCormick place before when I worked tradeshows. It’s big, not as big as Soldier Field, which is right next to it. Anyway I don’t know if Obama can fill it he may just block off a section and fill it with OWS types and union goons.
I’ll be curious to see Obungles’ new podium.
Will it say, “Office of the President-Defeated?”
I sense another “Hitler in the Bunker” election night parody coming soon...
Or, "Office of President-For-Life"?
Better watch out for stray bullets in the murder capital...
Or cancel and move it to some dinner theater! :-)
Some people will laugh! Others will cry!
