Yes, I know there had been some speculation about this possibility for years.  He was born in the U.S., and he is an American, even if he comes from an Italian family, so I guess it was just a matter of time before the federation allegiance would change back to the U.S. as well.

I think it is pretty exciting.  With Nakamura, So, and Caruana playing for the US, it will be a serious force in the chess world.  Not to mention that we will have the best shot of landing a world championship since Fischer.

I hope we can get all heavy hitters in a team championship / olympiad. Nakamura, So, Caruana on boards 1-3, but who on board 4? Robson or Shankland probably. Kamsky seems to be in a slump.

Nonetheless, I think that the idea of having someone like Kamsky at board 4 really shows the strength of the field we can put forward.
