President's Remarks After Dinner with the Mayor of Chicago and Opinion Leaders
The Chicago Firehouse Restaurant
8:21 P.M. CDT
THE PRESIDENT: Laura said, what do you want for your birthday? I said, I want to have dinner in Chicago with the Mayor. (Laughter.) Thank you all for joining us. We've had a wonderful discussion. Chicago is a fabulous town, Mayor. And you're awfully kind to host us here.
Somebody said, well, what's your birthday wish? I've got a lot of birthday wishes. I hope our troops are safe. I hope Roger Ebert does well. That's a birthday wish. I know a lot of people here in Chicago are praying for him. It's been a heck of a birthday party tonight, and I appreciate you all joining me, and looking forward to having my cake.
Thanks for coming.
