Competition for the Obama Library

November 16, 2010

The University of Hawaii is gearing up to make a bid for the Obama presidential library, even if his term is not over and he hopes to win a second, the Associated Press reported. Obama's roots in Hawaii have the university hopeful, and it has been looking at potential sites and meeting with federal archives officials to plan. The University of Chicago has also expressed interest in hosting the library of Obama, who taught there and whose Chicago home was in the university's neighborhood. No comment from the White House.
