Yes, but I still consider the Chicago presentation so far to be somewhat dry and ideallystic. Let's see what the future waits.

It appears to me that the presentation will stick to the quality of the city and ability to host the games. It won't have much flash or a wow factor. It will appeal to the head as opposed to the heart, although President Obama could be relied upon to sway emotions.

I agree. I think the goal is to hammer home why the bid is the strongest from a financial, infrastructure and spirit standpoint, then relying upon President Obama to wow the voters emotionally.

I don't think any presentation today is going to "realistic" and highlight the flaws in their bids or problems in their cities. It's all going to be lollipops and rainbows with some variation.

Right as I say that, the presentation switches to togetherness and emotion.

Here comes the First Lady...

True, though c'mon!

People of all minorities coming together and living in peaceful harmony with the single presence of the games?? Don't think so, unfortunately...

Mishelle Obama said i'm here asking you to choose America, The "Americans" must understand that we all are AMERICANS, from Canada to Brazil, to Chile...

Is the image in pink, red and purple serving as the background to the video the London Olympic Stadium?

A very good speech so far, but it doesn't make me want to stand up and yell "CHICAGO!" Come on Mr. President...give me that moment.

An outstanding speech from the President that sold the city and country very well. I was hoping for that moment though. The moment that stands out with a quote you never forget and is played time and time again when the games are going on. I agree. 9/10.

I found that true for the whole thing!

A very good speach indeed, and his oratory skills are THE BOMB, but it wasn't overwhelming, uplifting, transcedental, you know "Obama style", and as a Rio supporter, that makes me happy

8/10 or 8.5/10 for me...

Could become a 9/10 depending on how the other presentations go.

Fun back to the games?? Well, that's not what they've led to believe...

Prince Albert struggling with his question asking there.

The questions have been answered thoroughly and excellently thus far. This answer to the legacy question can be a major plus for them if answered well. The youth sports program is the one they should focus on and run with. It's a great plan that needs to be featured.

Yeah and I'm sure Rio's presentation with talk about all the crime, slums and whatnot. Yeah, right. it's gonna be all beaches, pictureesque pictures of sugarloaf mountain and art deco jesus.
