For Clinton, Latino vote could swing the deal

But Obama is pushing hard: ‘As Latinos get to know me, we do better’

For decades, much has been said about the potential power of Latino voters, but rarely has their impact lived up to expectations.

This year is different, according to political analysts and leaders of Latino activist organizations. While many Latinos like and admire both of the leading Democratic candidates for president, these authorities say, their years-long connection to former President Bill Clinton could deliver the party’s nomination to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.

The problem is not with Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, said respected Latino political analysts, who rejected as a too-easy stereotype the suggestion that Latino voters would not vote for Obama because he is a black man.

I don\’t care about the Latino not voting for Obama because he is a Black Man, that goes to show that they can\’t get pass the intensity of his color. THAT IS A SAD STATEMENT. Most of all, I am wondering if there enough legal Latino voters to make a real difference. We will prevail on….. as a nation now let me check the borders of Arizona and Texas… as I will remember this when I speak to my Congressman about immigration.

WHY DID I GET PRE-RECORDED MESSAGES SLASHING DONNA EDWARDS AND INCUMBENT AL WYNN. BETTER NOT NOBODY MESS WITH AL WYNN. IN ONE MESSAGE IT SAYS THAT THE OPPOSITION WOULD NOT PAY BAR FEES AND AVOIDED INCOME TAX. ON THE CONTRAST, THE MESSAGE STATED THAT HE SIDES WITH THE PREZ TOO MUCH AND DOESN\’T DO ENO
UGH TO FIGHT DRUGS BUT PROBABLY IS A LOBBYIST.

WELL I AGREE WITH McCAIN WE HAVE DO SOMETHING WITH THE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS WHICH ARE LOBBYIST. WE HAVE TO GET A RAINBOW COALITION GOING SO THAT THOSE WITH LIKE INTEREST CAN GET OUT THE WAY AND LET THE PEOPLE TAKE BACK THE COUNTRY TO GET THINGS DONE AND END THE WAR, NOT GO SOFT ON TERRORIST. TERRORIST MAKE GOOD DECISIONS TOO, THEY JUST HAVE STRANGE WAYS OF SUGGESTING ABOUT HOW TO GET THEIR POINT OVER. AND I AM CONCERNED THAT A FUTURE PRESIDENT MAY HAVE GROWN UP UNDER THE DOCTRINE OF ONE OF THE MORE EXTREMIST ISLAMIC TEACHINGS, BUT ANYTHING THAT IS NOT PEACE IS NOT PURELY OR ENTIRELY TO BLAME ON ISLAM AS A RELIGION OR A CULTURE AS A WHOLE.

CHECK OUT THE MID-ATLANTIC AND VIRGINIA PRIMARIES. I HEAR THAT THEIR ARE LIKE 168 DELEGATES UP FOR GRABS. DC WITH 15 DELEGATES WILL PROBABLY GO 100% TO OBAMA. VIRGINIA, WHICH IS A COMMONWEALTH AND THE QUEEN STILL HAS HOPE FOR THE HEART OF THE OLE CONFEDERATE IS GOING SOFT ON DEMOCRATS. ALL OF A SUDDEN THE DEMOCRATS ARE OPENING OFFICES IN THE AREA, AS I ONCE READ A SIGN IN RED, BLACK AND WHITE THAT SAID \”WE ARE NOT SLAVES TO THE DEMOCRATS.\” IN MARYLAND, THE JUVENILE JUSTICE IS STILL OUT OF PLACE, SO YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT DECISIONS DO HAVE LEGAL AND ADULT CONSEQUENCES.
