Obama library officials dissatisfied with Chicago's two bids

Obama presidential library officials privately are dissatisfied with Chicago's two bids for the multimillion dollar facility, a home for which is expected to be announced in early 2015, according to a source close to the foundation leading the effort for the president and first lady.

According to the source, the foundation's board, which includes two prominent Chicagoans, has "major concerns" that the University of Chicago's proposal, which has not been made public, lacks a site that is wholly controlled by the university.

Meanwhile, the source classified the University of Illinois at Chicago's proposal as "strong" but said the foundation is worried about pending leadership transitions.
