A Capitol Decision

The SJ-R is reporting the site tentatively chosen for Barack Obama’s formal announcement that he is running for president will be…

…the Old State Capitol with the Prairie Capital Convention Center as a bad weather back-up.

That’s probably a good choice (weather permitting) giving some historical favor and allowing for some mention of Abraham Lincoln who once legislated from the building. And since it’s on a Saturday (Feb. 10), I think Obama can expect a good crowd without disrupting normal workday activities downtown. Oh, yeah and there’ll be some visitors in town spending money which ain’t a bad thing either. The Feed Store might be busy that day.
