    NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 23: (AFP-OUT) Former U.S. President Bill Clinton speaks during the closing plenary session of the annual Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) on September 23, 2010 in New York City. President Obama was speaking to introduce First Lady Michelle Obama. The sixth annual meeting of the CGI gathers prominent individuals in politics, business, science, academics, religion and entertainment to discuss global issues such as climate change and the reconstruction of Haiti. The event, founded by Clinton after he left office, is held the same week as the General Assembly at the United Nations, when most world leaders are in New York City.

    For blue state Illinois to remain blue, it looks like it will take even more than two separate visits from President Barack Obama, one from Vice President Joe Biden and the First Lady.

    Now former President Bill Clinton is paying a visit to the Windy City.

    Clinton will be in Chicago on Tuesday, visiting Obama's home state to rev the troops one week before Election Day.

    The former president is seen as more popular than Obama in some states and will be campaigning for all Democratic candidates, but will highlight Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias, Gov. Pat Quinn and some congressional races.

    And it appears the president will return one more time as well, likely the final weekend before the election.
