Boren and Bloomberg for president?

A political meeting in Norman is fueling the rumor that the political duo will enter the race for the White House; of course they would run on an independent ticket.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will attend a meeting at OU next Monday, January 8. He continues to deny rumors he wants to run for president.

"Look, I'm not running for president. What I am trying to do is speak out and push what I think we need and that's an independent approach; where we get rid of partisanship and special interests and we stop this gridlock that you see in washington," said Mayor Bloomberg. "No one's willing to do anything unless it's in their selfish interests."

Bloomberg was invited to next Monday's meeting by OU President David Boren. Bloomberg was just at OU's last graduation in May 2007.
