Oklahoma's New Miss America Likes a Rising Star

The AltTulsa gang doesn't usually have much to say about the Miss America or the rapidly aging Miss America pageant. Let's just say that it's not really our cup of tea.

But today's web brings us this Miss America tidbit. Seems as if the new Miss America, Lawton native Lauren Nelson, 20, likes a certain Illinois Democrat who is running for president.

That's right, Sooner fans, Miss America reportedly said this week that she's a fan of Sen. Barack Obama. We don't know why she likes Obama and we suspect Ms. Nelson is supposed to remain nonpartisan. After all, she's probably supposed to represent all Americans.

Still, it's refreshing to hear a young Oklahoman who's willing to say a kind word about the junior senator from the Land of Lincoln.
