Why does SA hispanic favor Hillary over Obama. Is this the classic brown vs black. I don't understand when they say the older generations of Hispanics are against a black candidate when MLK march for their civil rights

Again, what interest group do you think Obama is going to be most focused on? If you don't believe that he has special interest in a special interest group then you are not dealing in the real world. It is a natural thing for him to want to promote his special interest.

When Henry Cisneros was mayor of SA did he only focus on the hispanic interest group or was he mayor fo all the citizens of SA. When Mayor Dinkins of NYC and Tom Bradley of Los Angles did not just focus on African Americans but all the citizens of their city. SA mexicans got to let go of this backward thinking. It like that 40 % of Mexican don't know thier orgin and thier language are from Africa

MLK marched for their rights but that has nothing to do with a candidate running today. Skin color should have nothing to do with it.

I agree with the special interest, too. Obama, just like Clinton and McCain are bought and paid for by special interests. That's just the way we've allowed our gov't to become.

I think this is just a lame attempt to get people to jump on your Obama bandwagon. I wish people would just use common sense and just make the most logical selection... the selection that will help our country start moving in a positive direction soon. We cannot afford anymore mistakes. At least Hillary has the experience, knowledge and the toughness and fortitude to get the job done. She already knows her way around and does not have to go through a learning curve period, she has already learned from her mistakes, she will be a good sheppard for us globally, there are alot of advantages to her being president with Bill at her side, together they will be able to yield more influence to get things done. I really believe that she will bring Obama on board if she wins the primary in order to nail the presidency. We need a super sharp and experienced leader to get us out of the trouble we are in. I do not want to take a risk with Obama when I know she can do a better job. I wish people would stop worrying about Bill's past picadillo's or the fact that Hillary is a woman. She is the best candidate to get this country back on target... the others can only bring us down and I don't want that to happen. I think with Hillary as President, Bill at her side and Obama as Vice President we may actually see alot of progress in short order. I think some people don't want a woman for president.
