As Lucrum stated, and I have pointed out in previous responses, I do actually live IN the heartland. So far I am two for two when Obama steps on the feet of issues the people here care about and what he had better do about it.
So, yes, I live in Peoria, one of the principle cities in the heartland.
Peoria is Chicago for anyone not from the state.
I get that it's geographically the "heartland", probably even considered so by the census. Apart from that, if you were to ask people whether they consider Chicago the "Heartland" of the US, I'm not so sure people would respond with a resounding "yes".
When I think of the US's Heartland, I think of some tractor pulling, out of Kansas, sun burned farmer with a Semper Fi tattoo on his arm.
