President Obama heads to Denmark later today to lobby for Chicago’s bid to host the 2016 Olympics.
The first lady, who is already in Copenhagen, says they plan to treat it like a political campaign.
However, many critics say the President should stay home to focus on the big issues like health care, the call for more troops in Afghanistan and nuclear talks with Iran.
Chicago is competing with Tokyo, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro in wooing the International Olympic Committee in Copenhagen.
A decision is expected Friday.
