“¡EMAIL!”, I shouted up to the heavens as Jerry Seinfeld does when muttering the name of his arch nemesis Newman. It comes at me fast. Every form of messaging in my inbox–email, Facebook, Twitter, and online dating direct messages–needs serious housecleaning. “Archiving” really means not knowing–or caring–why there’s correspondence from 2009 at the end of a looooonng queue. Answer RIGHT […]

Latina_Vote-TheWiseLatinaClub

The day after the election a friend posted on my Facebook page, the “Latino Vote –unfrigginbelievable.” She’s right. Many factors contributed to President Obama’s re-election. But few are as important as the Latino vote. Hispanics made up 10 percent of the U.S. electorate this year–doubling in the past 16 years. The number of Latino voters […]

¡VP Debate in TWLC Tweets!

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado on Sirius XM's P.O.T.U.S Politics Radio on Puerto Rico Primary, Election 2012, The Latino Vote

One of the coolest aspects of Election 2012 has been the Wild West of social media–the good, the bad, the ugly, and the f’ugly.  From the qué cool files, all this debate moderator escándalo–who did they choose, not choose as I write in “Why There Should Not Be a ‘Latino’ Debate” is really a moot […]

Minutes after the Commission on Presidential Debates, or CPD, announced that CNN’s Candy Crowley would be the first woman in 20 years to moderate one of the 2012 debates, the Twitterverse started burning up with the question: Why wasn’t a Latino chosen to chair this staple of the election season, culminating in a letter from […]

What’s Wrong with National Voter Registration Day

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado in Latina Magazine on Election 2012: Young Latino Voters

Very little, except that like any “holiday” most people will get excited, Twitter will burn down, and then everyone goes back to her solitary lane in life. Not me. I want to push you to not just register which is critically important but to stay engaged and informed. Gente, don’t get me wrong.  Registering to […]

Univision Candidate Forum Big Loser? Not the Prez, Not the Guv, But the Commish on Presidential Debates

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado Guest Hosts NPR's Tell Me More on day of "Obamacare" Ruling

Your humble Tweeter-in-Chief was glued to her computer screen to watch the Univision Candidates Forum and tweet out to the universo what Governor Romney on Wednesday followed by President Obama had to say. ¡Momento!  Aren’t there normally four debates, one each week of October, leading up to election day?  Indeed.  But the Commission for Presidential Debates […]

Click here to watch the video secretly taped at a private Florida fundraiser. The main purpose of the Republican National Convention which I covered was to introduce the former governor of Massachusetts to the American public.

To Understand Mitt Romney’s Immigration Posición, You First Must Rewind

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado asks in Latina Magazine if the Republican Party can become "Latino"

Before 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney addressed immigration to amigos at the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce conference, he brought it up at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa which I covered. This emotional hot button issue was reduced to a line of “we are a nation of immigrants.” Then there was his charla in the Spring […]
