The Latino Vote: The Way Forward

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 […]

President Obama has often been criticized in the media as being cool, aloof, detached, even being Mr. Spock-ish.  He seems to prove them all right at the first debate.  Not so for número dos where he was sharp, aggressive, and in control. Thing is, so was Mitt Romney, who I believe “held”. The Obama/Romney Re-match, […]
