I noticed that there’s a picture of John Edwards on Hillary Clinton’s myspace page. I wonder if this means that Edwards is going to endorse Clinton. I actually would love to see Edwards back in the game, as a VP. I’m only speculating that he might endorse Clinton but if he does, I wonder if it means that he’ll be Hillary’s pick for VP. And I know that the media is riding high on the Obama bandwagon, but Clinton is not out. She’s leading in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. Speaking of Texas, I know that the Latino vote is leaning overwhelmingly towards Clinton. I just want Latino voters to come out on election day and actually vote.

Did anyone really think that Obama had a chance of winning Nevada? Yes, Obama is popular and charismatic. That’s great. But what people don’t realize is that Latino voters are more likely to vote for Hillary, a white woman, than for Obama, a black man. This is where racial politics comes into play.
During this election, Latino voters will play a deciding role in presidential politics. Most Latino voters are turning away from Republican candidates due to the “anti-immigrant” stance many of these candidates have taken in their policy-making decisions. And amongst minority groups, there has always been racial conflict between Blacks and Latinos. Sad, but true. So I predict, that in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas Hillary will be the winner.
