    direct question. Made me ashamed to be an American I have to admit. I am selfish. I live in Illinois. I'm an American. I'd love to have the games in Chicago. But there is also a part of me that is stunned, stunned that in 2009 a South American country has never hosted the games.

      Then again, if this vote had been happening last year while Bush was still president, Chicago wouldn't have received a single vote.
