Here in Chicago, specifically in Hyde Park, there is the sense that everyone feels that they are the best friends of the Obama family. Everyone talks about their family and family concerns, the newspapers and local TV stations refer to him and the family as more than just local folks made good. Everyone knows where he lives, where he gets coffee, etc. This is understandable in a small town (like Crawford, for instance), but this is a city of 4 million people!

I hope you see Obama's motorcade...or have a coffee from "his" spot.
