Barack Obama is moving parts of the Democratic National Committee ("DNC") to Chicago. While it's a wonderful town aside from being flat as a pancake, it's known for very dirty politics (in U.S. terms). So, Obama should fit right in.
Per this, "Obama's senior staff will largely take over the coordination of national campaign efforts and state-level efforts... Democratic field operations, constituency outreach and political operations will become one integrated operation under the plan, with the central brain trust in Chicago, explained the DNC source..." Howard Dean's 50-state scheme is also disfavored by the new leaders.
