Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

It'll be Rubio...

...or another prominent Latino politician as the Republican VP nominee. Although a majority of Latino voters are for legal immigration, I feel the Republican Party has inadvertently alienated a significant number of those individuals by their immigration stance that some see as anti-Latino.

From a strategic perspective, I can't imagine the Republican nominee not making an attempt to re-gain many of those votes.

http://articles.cnn.com/2011-06-30/poli ... M:POLITICS

"Latino officials see big Hispanic vote in 2012 These findings come after census numbers show that Hispanics make up 16.3% of the U.S. population and are now the country's largest minority group."

RyeCatcher will likely leave the country when Rubio is chosen :shock:

Republicans also did themselves no favors by opposing the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.

Quite. The SCOTUS is clearly in desperate need of the towering intellect of a 'wise Latina' who believes that the Spanish language has no adjectives.

(In a 1996 speech at Princeton University: 'For example, in Spanish we do not have adjectives. A noun is described with a preposition....' )

Navarrette is a conservative? I thought the Daily Oklahoman just carried his column as token liberal.
