I'm told President Barack Obama, Michelle, Malia and Sasha are returning to Chicago on Friday for the weekend--a rare family visit back home. Obama stayed a night at the Kenwood house on June 1, following fund-raisers in the city.
I am making a guess here as a reason for the trip-- the Obama family will be in the city on Saturday, the day the daughter of senior advisor and friend Valerie Jarrett--that's Laura, an attorney-- is getting married--and they were invited to the wedding. The wedding is at the Kenwood home where Jarrett was raised--down the street from the Obama house.
Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed had the scoop about the Jarrett wedding.
