Well it’s not actually the first election where a so called minority is running. But yes this is the first election where a black man and a woman of any race have a legitimate chance of winning the election. This particular race was special in that it had a black man, a Hispanic man, and a woman running for the nomination. You don’t have to say no offense because this truly was a great time for American in that it seems we are finally celebrating diversity in that it’s not automatically going to be a white male that wins the presidency.

… a Hispanic man? I don’t think McCain is Hispanic, and the only people who actually have a chance of getting the presidency are McCain, Clinton and Obama.

Bill Richardson.

Well, he was a major decider of whom to support for American Latinos. But I don’t think he was actually running for the nomination, was he?

Yes, he was.

He was running as a contender for the democrats. Of course he dropped out but I was just making a point.
