Washington, Jan 29 (ANI): President Barack Obama, who has acknowledged his admiration for former President Abraham Lincoln and was sworn in using the Lincoln Bible, could return to Illinois to celebrate famous Abe's 200th birthday.

Officials have declined to comment on Obama's February schedule, but one source said Obama could return during President's Day weekend, when daughters Sasha and Malia have a three-day break from school, The Chicago Tribune reported.

The trip could mark Obama's first trip aboard Air Force One, which usually lands at O'Hare Airport.

To avoid snarling Chicago's already crazy traffic, officials have considered flying Obama via helicopter to a helipad near his South Side home, the report said. (ANI)
