President Obama rolled out the red carpet for Chicago's 2016 Olympics bid Wednesday with a White House rally in support of his hometown's bid.

"Chicago is ready. The American people are ready. We want these games," Obama said. "If you choose Chicago, I promise you this - Chicago will make America proud, and America will make the world proud."

Not just the bid's cheerleader-in-chief, Obama also got in on some of the action.
