    President Obama and the foundation helping to plot his path after the White House have selected Jackson Park on the South Side of Chicago as the site of his presidential library, ending a debate within his inner circle about the location, a person familiar with the decision said Wednesday. Mr. Obama and his presidential foundation have been deliberating for months over whether to place the library in Jackson Park, which is on a broad expanse of Lake Michigan and borders the Woodlawn neighborhood, or in the Washington Park neighborhood, which is closer to the Obamas’ home in Chicago. …

    By John F. Di Leo - On Wednesday, January 21, the sun rose on a nation still licking its wounds from a beating it had taken the night before. At 9:00pm EST on Tuesday, a pugilist stood there – the Resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – safe behind a big, sturdy podium for protection, and socked the American people in the jaw, again and again, for as long as we were willing to sit out here in TV-land and take it... and the entire bodyguard that the Constitution had provided to defend them from such a beating - the House,...

    Hawaii hopes it has an offer Honolulu-born President Barack Obama won’t be able to turn down. It hopes to build him a presidential library on the ocean, with a dramatic view of his hometown’s famed Diamond Head volcanic crater. The state’s abundant sunshine would generate solar power and support vegetable gardens on site. Hawaii officials predicted Thursday that the prime, 8-acre spot on a rocky shoreline between Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, combined with the state’s many tourists, would make the facility one of the nation's most heavily visited presidential centers. …

    You would think a state with such dire financial problems couldn’t even consider spending such a large sum of tax dollars on something that’s usually built with private money. Luckily, the Illinois House has backed off the idea for the moment. USA Today reported… Illinois shelving $100M gift to Obama library A plan to offer $100 million in tax dollars to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to Illinois is on the shelf, with lawmakers prepared to wrap up their spring session without advancing the idea.

    Since Franklin Roosevelt, every modern U.S. president has opened his own presidential library. On Friday, President George Washington, the nation’s first, finally will get his turn, as a state-of-the-art presidential library is christened in his honor.

Some 800 dignitaries, officials, and VIPs will be on hand to witness the unveiling of a library purpose-built to preserve the original books and papers from Gen. Washington’s personal collection.

    TUCUMCARI, N.M. - Most Presidential libraries are constructed after the President completes his term. However, according to KOAT-ABC, a New Mexico man has determined the location for President Obama's library and has marked it with a sign that is sparking controversy in one small town. The sign rests on top of an outhouse. It reads: Obama's Presidential Library. Some in town view the sign as bad taste while others are supportive. One man told a local reporter that folks are treating it as a tourist destination and that it is frequently photographed. The man responsible for the sign would not...

    A beautiful day in Dallas - fair skies, temps in the high 60s - thousands of people came out to witness something that is so uniquely American that I'm not certain it survives translation into other languages. The dedication of a Presidential library is not a regular or usual event. There are only 13 such libraries in the Presidential library system. The first was Franklin Delano Roosevelt; the most recent is George W. Bush. Other private or non-profit organizations house the collected papers and memorabilia from previous Presidents but now the process is more systematized. The way these work -...

    DALLAS—As former President George W. Bush prepares to officially open his presidential library on Thursday, a question arises as it has for his predecessors: How objective will it be about his time in the White House? Bush left office five years ago as one of the most unpopular presidents in history, his poll numbers weighed down by public discontent over his handling of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and worries about the economy. But the former president wanted to take the controversies about his presidency head-on, say several former aides who worked closely with him on the library.

    Have any of you thought about this? The Obama Library? And where would it be built without threats of stopping or interfering with the construction? If Obama seriously thinks he deserves a library to be constructed in his honor, he needs to move back to Kenya where they will build a shack in his honor (made from hardened composted cow manure)

    Former President George W. Bush on Thursday outlined plans to establish a $300 million library, museum and research institute, taking a step back onto the national stage. The George W. Bush Policy Institute—which would be the first think tank to be affiliated with a presidential library—will address issues that were priorities during Mr. Bush's presidency, such as education, global health, political freedom and economic growth, and seek to promote advances by offering practical solutions, the former president said. In a speech at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where the center is slated to be built, Mr. Bush said the institute...

    Chicago) -- Those who thought President Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize was premature have something else to ponder: Obama's presidential library. Although the George W. Bush library hasn't opened yet in Dallas, "Bloomberg News" reports sponsors already have contacted the White House about making the University of Chicago a permanent home for Obama's papers. There's a connection to the Nobels, because more than 80 have been claimed by people affiliated with the university. Obama taught constitutional law at the school for twelve years.

    FORMER FBI Director Louis Freeh writes movingly of his disappointment that Presi dent Bill Clinton did little or nothing to in tervene with the Saudi monarchy to let his agents question the accused perpetrators of the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing. But he is at a loss to understand the president's conduct. In an earlier terror attack, the Saudis had cut off the heads of the suspected terrorists before the FBI could question them. To avoid a repeat, Freeh went to the president and emphasized the importance of intervening with the Saudis to allow questioning. The Saudis, of course, didn't want...
