Yet when the Republicans have a Latino speaker they're accused of pandering.

Yawn - so the Dems have two Hispanic mayors at their convention.

The Republicans had the only female Hispanic governor, two other Hispanic governors, a Hispanic U.S. Senator, a current Hispanic U.S. Representative, and a Hispanic candidate for U.S. Senate who is very likely to be elected in November.

Not to mention 24 female speakers including two black women who gave a couple of the best speeches of the entire convention - one whom is a mayor and a congressional candidate and the other only the former U.S. Secretary of State.

Was was that I heard about a "war on women"?

I wonder if there is a Marx in the mix somewhere.

Except that Latinos actually vote for Democrats.

That's the highest ranking Hispanic democrat they could find?

How embarrassing for the "big tent" party! Ha!

Keynote speeches are usually given to people who are seen as up-and-coming in the party, not the highest ranking politicians.
