Sometimes with blogging, it's all about timing. Again, I hadn't planned to post today, but while the time is right, I really want to share a very interesting article on the blog Multiplicative Identity. Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez takes on the New York Times with her post Obama and the Latino Vote in the NY Times. There are also some very interesting comments to say the least.
Things are getting so heated now and I fear that it will get far worse. I can tell you that I will NOT be voting for Hillary Clinton in the Massachusetts primary. Most likely my vote will be for Barack Obama, but I do like John Edwards too.
It's also been interesting reading so much about how the vote of the black woman is suddenly being noticed. Here is an article on CNN. A Google search for "black women's vote election" yields quite a number of interesting articles. I'm sure my vote would be far more important if I were in a state like South Carolina, but being in Massachusetts, the demographics are quite different.
In my opinion, it's not about picking based on gender or race. It's the issues they focus on and where they stand on those issues. Do I think my life will be better with them in office? And the lives of my family and friends. Also it's about integrity. Do I trust them? Do they play dirty? We have a black Supreme Court Justice and he sure as hell isn't doing anything to help my interests.
