Obamas want to live in New York, not Chicago, after leaving WH

Does that mean the mammoth traffic snarls he causes every time he visits will become a daily occurrence?

In an exclusive, Chicago Sun-Times’s Michael Sneed claims that an anonymous source with a “relationship with the Obamas” told him, “They want New York, plain and simple,” adding:

It’s not an unusual decision. The Clintons moved to New York after Bill Clinton left the presidency. It’s a happening place.

And Obama is such a “happening” guy:

In addition to which, the Clintons don’t live here in the city proper but out in the ‘burbs — far from the “vibe” that appears to beckon the Obamas.

A question that arises is whether there is room in the Big Apple for two Barack Obamas. After the city already has Mayor Bill de Blasio (aka Obama lite). Then again, the two are so alike that it’s not impossible to envision them becoming fast friends.
