CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson says she thinks she has found the perfect site for the Barack Obama Presidential Museum and Library. Jackson is proposing using part of the old USX steel mill site on Chicago’s South Side for that purpose. She says it’s near where Obama started his career as a community organizer, and is close to both his home and to the University of Chicago, where he used to teach law. Jackson also says the 500-acre site on the shore of Lake Michigan is large, pollution-free and offers great views of the Chicago skyline. Copyright 2011 The Associated Press.
