Oh no they didn’t!
As if their lush tropical rain forests, miles of beaches and volcanic vistas weren't enough, lawmakers in the island paradise are asking President Obama to put his future presidential library in the state where he was born and raised.
The state's House Tourism, Culture and International Affairs Committee unanimously passed a resolution Monday urging Obama to choose Hawaii as the location for the library, which will serve as the repository for the documents, records and artifacts of his presidency.
But they’re going to have a fight on their hands, because Illinois will not take this lightly.
People have already been scouting Chicago locations for the president’s repository.
Apparently the University of Chicago has already reached out to the president to consider the university where he taught law as a home for his memories.
