Daley: One Million People to Celebrate with Obama

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley says one million people will attend Obama's election night party in Grant Park in Chicago. Security is going to be a nightmare, but Daley is handing that to the Secret Service. From the Sun-Times:
Mayor Daley predicted Tuesday that more than a million people would descend on Grant Park for Barack Obama's election night “celebration” and said the city has no plans to screen people entering the park.

“We're not gonna be screening people going to the park. You'll be here for the next two weeks. You just can't do it,” Daley said.

Last week, Daley put a $2 million price tag on the cost of city services tied to the Obama rally and said the cash-flush Obama campaign had agreed to cover every penny because of Chicago's "financial crisis."
