HONOLULU — Barack Obama hasn't even finished the second year of his first term in the White House, but officials with at least two universities have already positioned themselves to win the Hawaii-born president's favor for his presidential library.

The University of Hawaii has been well into early preparations. That includes preliminary searches for potential sites, talks with National Archives officials and deliberations on whether a new academic center might accompany an Obama library and museum.

The University of Chicago, located where Obama's political career began, signaled an interest a year ago but has very little now as if late.

And Obama is saying even less.

Asked to discuss Obama's views about a presidential library, a White House spokesman simply said, "No comment."
