In Chicago, no less.

The last we heard of former President Barack Obama, he was relaxing "Brando-style" at a secluded resort in Tahiti.  ...Or, he was writing a book.  ...Or something.  No one seems to be entirely sure what he was up to.  Whatever it was, it was nice not to have him hanging around.

Sadly, the honeymoon's over.

Barack Obama has decided it's time to ramp up the ol' outrage machine. Not only has he tried to insert himself into the French elections, he's also set up a return to the speaking circuit. On Monday, he'll be back in Rahm Emanuel's social justice paradise of Chicago - where he'll give a speech about the only thing he's truly qualified to address.

You guessed it, "community organizing."

Former President Barack Obama will return to Chicago on Monday to speak to young people at the University of Chicago, in what will be his first public event since leaving the White House.

Obama and young leaders will hold a conversation on civic engagement and discuss community organizing at the university's Logan Center for the Arts, his office announced Friday.

Hundreds of people are expected to attend, chosen from area universities that were given tickets for distribution, said Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president. About six young people will appear on stage with him for the 11 a.m. discussion, Lewis said.

Ah yes, Obama's returning to his fanciful salad days where he can relive the youthful romance of being an Alinskyite on a left-wing campus.
