The south end of Chicago's Loop, which is just a few blocks west of where Obama will make his speech tomorrow night contains a number of Federal courthouse and bureaucratic
buildings surrounding the Federal Plaza and this week those buildings are now very well guarded by armed Federal Police with dogs. The streets running through Grant Park will be closed and the City has said that they expect 1 million people to go downtown on election night. What will they do if he loses? As the nation has seen Chicago has more than its fair share communists and anarchists, it's an historical thing here but it's also a danger on nights like the one that tomorrow would be if John McCain beats all expectations and wins the Presidential Election. Those people like to take advantage of crowds for cover and to attempts at playing a crowd's madness.
