I am going to have to give Obama some points for at least trying..

Barack Obama is going to give it a shot.

On Monday, Illinois' Democratic junior senator will begin mediating the long-simmering dispute between Will County officials and U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) over who should control the proposed airport near Peotone.

Then again reguardless of the money they have put up I fail to understand why Elk Grove Village and Bensenville should have any real say about an airport in southern Will County. This whole airport thing is just a tactical move on their part to keep O'Hare from growing and that is where there intrest is going to lie, not nessesarily with what the people near the new site or in Will county in general want.
