First, word came that first lady Michelle Obama would go to Copenhagen next month to promote Chicago's bid for the 2016 Olympics. (President Obama, no surprise, said she was our "best representative.") Now, another fashionable, famous pillar of city pride might make the case before the Olympic committee: Oprah.

Oprah was asked Sunday whether she'd be up for the trip to lobby for the games, and told the Tribune: "There's some talk about it, and if I feel I can be useful there, then that's what I will do."

Adds NBC Chicago: "Of course, Chicago 2016 Chief Executive Patrick Ryan said his team would 'absolutely' like to have Winfrey on board."

Can the Wonder Twins snare the big bid?
