Obama May Visit Chicago in February

CT: Barack Obama may return to Chicago for a home visit as early as mid-February, during a time when Illinois will be awash in celebrations marking Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday.

The possible trip could be one of Obama's first flights on Air Force One and comes with the question of where the president—and potential traffic jams—will land.

Aides declined to comment on Obama's February schedule, but a source close to him said he could make his first presidential visit to Chicago as early as Presidents' Day weekend, when his daughters have a three-day break from school.
