David Boren and other leading moderates are going to meet at OU on Jan. 7 to discuss an independent candidate for president, possibly Bloomberg. They should clean up all the tree branches in Norman before all the bigwigs get there.

"Conveners of the meeting include such prominent Democrats as former senators Sam Nunn (Ga.), Charles S. Robb (Va.) and David L. Boren (Okla.), and former presidential candidate Gary Hart. Republican organizers include Sen. Chuck Hagel (Neb.), former party chairman Bill Brock, former senator John Danforth (Mo.) and former New Jersey governor Christine Todd Whitman."

Senator Hagel from Nebraska is a very skilled, interesting, and intelligent speaker. He was considered a stong possible Republican contender to run for President in '08, but declined, which was a surprise to most. I'm assuming his family didn't want him to run. There are a lot of things I like about him, (although I don't agree with his current stance on illegal immigration and Social Security - he is for amnesty/privitization).

I haven't always agreed with David Boren, who was our governor and senator for Oklahoma for years, and now pres of University of Oklahoma. He has been a good leader all in all though.

The bad part of our system is that good leaders like Sen. Hagel and others won't put their family through all the negative aspects of running for and serving as president.

I agree Peggy. The campus 'clean up people' have done a great job, with clean up so far, but everything should look perfect thats for sure! They cant do anything in Norman and it still looks really bad. Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you too, HT!

They still have a week to clean up. I read in the Transcript that they will be moving into high gear this week. They should figure out the routes to and from the airport and clean those areas up first. Actually, most residential areas have stacked their branches up into semi-neat piles on the curb, so it will at least look like something has been done.

Maybe there will be some good media coverage of Norman.
