Denver University has decided not to give W an award. It is an example of the politicization of everything at the university. Fortunately it is not my university. So the question is if Obama was to come to my school as president emeritus (sadly he hasn’t reached that distinction yet) would I fight it? It is an easy no and not only because there is no chance of winning and I rarely tilt at windmills.
W is a classy guy but will he keep the date given the hostility the school has shown him. My guess is that he will keep the date and help them with fund raising. Time will tell.
