Nobody wants to be POOR but we all hate on people that we think are richer than us... What's THAT about?
A Mexican American (Latina) marries a Black guy but thinks that since he's from France he's not REALLY Black, so she opts to support the White woman who's running against another Black guy for President, who is really NOT BLACK either because his mother is White and his father is from Kenya.  They're both Black and you are against your husband? 
Why is it that we think that some Hispanics want to be White unless they are recieving an advantage for being a minority but Blacks can't do the same thing without being accused of being ashamed of their race? 
It's a Multiple Standard

Finding Ourselves Arguing

People Have Brains BUT We Often Fail To Use Them… Nows Our Chance!!!

For those of you who want to look it up yourselves:

Records of these two candidates should be scrutinized in order to make an informed decision.

Senator Clinton, who has served only one full term - 6yrs. - and another year campaigning, has managed to author and pass into law - 20 - twenty pieces of legislation in her first six years.

These bills can be found on the website of the Library of Congress but to save you trouble, I'll post them here for you.

1. Establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site.
2. Support the goals and ideals of Better Hearing and Speech Month.
3. Recognize the Ellis Island Medal of Honor.
4. Name courthouse after Thurgood Marshall.
5. Name courthouse after James L. Watson.
6. Name post office after Jonn A. O'Shea.
7. Designate Aug. 7, 2003, as National Purple Heart Recognition Day.
8. Support the goals and ideals of National Purple Heart Recognition Day.
9. Honor the life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton on the bicentennial of his death.
10. Congratulate the Syracuse Univ. Orange Men's Lacrosse Team on winning
the championship.
11. Congratulate the Le Moyne College Dolphins Men's Lacrosse Team on winning the championship.
12. Establish the 225th Anniversary of the American Revolution
Commemorative Program.
13. Name post office after Sergeant Riayan A. Tejeda.
14. Honor Shirley Chisholm for her service to the nation and express condolences on her death.
15. Honor John J. Downing, Brian Fahey, and Harry Ford, firefighters who lost their lives on duty. Only five of Clinton 's bills are, more substantive.
16. Extend period of unemployment assistance to victims of 9/11.
17. Pay for city projects in response to 9/11
18. Assist landmine victims in other countries.
19. Assist family caregivers in accessing affordable respite care.
20. Designate part of the National Forest System in Puerto Rico as protected in the wilderness preservation system.

There you have it, the fact's straight from the Senate Record.
Now, I would post those of Obama's, but the list is too substantive, so I'll mainly categorize. During the first - 8 - eight years of his elected service he sponsored over 820 bills. He introduced 233 regarding healthcare reform, 125 on poverty and public assistance, 112 crime fighting bills, 97 economic bills, 60 human rights and anti-discrimination bills, 21 ethics reform bills, 15 gun control, 6 veterans affairs and many others.

His first year in the U.S. Senate, he authored 152 bills and co-sponsored another 427. These included **the Coburn-Obama Government Transparency Act of 2006 - became law, **The Lugar-Obama Nuclear Non-proliferation and Conventional Weapons Threat Reduction Act, - became law, **The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act, passed the Senate, **The 2007
Government Ethics Bill, - became law, **The Protection Against Excessive Executive Compensation Bill, In committee, and many more.

In all, since entering the U.S. Senate, Senator Obama has written 890 bills and co-sponsored another 1096. An impressive record, for someone who supposedly has no record according to some who would prefer that this comparison not be made public.
And the media tells us that he has NO EXPERIENCE???  And We Believe them...

an article in the Dallas Morning News subtly put it best WITHOUT once saying it at all, still it's IMBEDDED there.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama spar over experience vs. judgment

08:55 AM CST on Sunday, March 2, 2008

By CHRISTY HOPPE and TODD J. GILLMAN / The Dallas Morning News;

The Lone Star showdown roared into its final stretch Saturday, Hillary Rodham Clinton assailing Barack Obama's campaign as being built entirely on one anti-war speech six years ago and Mr. Obama questioning her judgment on what he calls the most important decision this decade: going to war in Iraq.

"His entire campaign is based on one speech he gave at an anti-war rally in 2002," Mrs. Clinton said in a news conference aboard her campaign plane as she traveled to Fort Worth and Dallas for two rallies, her biggest events yet in North Texas.

Mr. Obama sharpened his rebuttal Saturday night in Ohio, painting Mrs. Clinton as a patsy of sorts for having supported President Bush's request for war authority. He demanded credit for more than a single anti-war speech as proof of his good judgment.

"I was in the middle of a U.S. Senate campaign. I argued forcefully against this strategy, repeatedly. ... And just about everything I predicted would happen, happened," Mr. Obama said at a town-hall meeting in suburban Cleveland.

Just days before potential make-or-break primaries in Texas and Ohio, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama continued their frantic push for support. After spending most of the day in Texas, Mrs. Clinton flew to New York to appear on Saturday Night Live. She delivered an "editorial response" to a skit lampooning last Tuesday's Ohio debate and gave the signature introduction, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night." Mr. Obama campaigned in Rhode Island and Ohio.

Off the trail, the Clinton campaign sent negative ad mailers to Texas homes, challenging Mr. Obama on his health-care plan and what she portrayed as consumer-unfriendly votes on energy and interest rates. The Obama camp, meanwhile, unveiled four new TV ads in Texas, including one featuring a retired Air Force general praising Mr. Obama's opposition to the Iraq war.

In a rally before about 6,000 people at Dallas' Fair Park Coliseum, Mrs. Clinton exhorted supporters to go to the polls and caucuses Tuesday. On Friday, early voting ended after setting records across the state.

Mrs. Clinton spoke of national security as the keystone of the elections – especially with so much instability after eight years of the Bush administration, she said.

"It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush," she said, to cheers. "Grab your brooms and your mops and your vacuum cleaners and help me out."

It was the second day of punching back and forth on the experience vs. judgment question, a major point of contention between candidates alike on most policy issues. In an ad launched Friday and again in her Saturday speeches, Mrs. Clinton invoked the image of the White House phone ringing at 3 a.m., saying she is calm and ready in the face of an international crisis.

Mrs. Clinton said she "was involved in a lot of decisions that were made," in foreign policy during her husband's administration but acknowledged under questioning from reporters that she had never made a middle-of-the night decision affecting U.S. policy.

"No one who hasn't been president has ever done that," she said. The Obama camp noted that she did not hold a security clearance in her husband's administration.

Mr. Obama shot back with a similar ad and raised the issue again Saturday in Ohio.

"When you think about who you want answering that phone call at 3 in the morning, you might want to consider who had the judgment not to be bulldozed into supporting a war that made us, I believe, less safe," he said.

He went further, arguing that by provoking and emboldening Iran, the war has been a strategic blunder – a rebuttal to Sen. John McCain's stance that the war was justified but poorly executed.

"I just profoundly disagree," he said. "We've spent half a trillion dollars now to make Iran more powerful. That's what we've done."

In Texas, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama are in a dead heat in most polls, and she spent Saturday striking the theme that she is ready to run the government and he is not.

"There's a big difference between speeches and solutions," she said in Fort Worth.

Earlier, Mrs. Clinton rejected Mr. Obama's suggestion that her campaign is resorting to fearmongering to try to win votes.

"I don't think the people in Texas scare all that easily," she said.

She cited her experience of traveling to 80 countries during the Clinton administration and said it better equips her to compete with Mr. McCain, a Vietnam War hero with long foreign-policy experience in the Senate.

"If Sen. Obama is unwilling to engage me on national security, how is he going to engage Sen. McCain?" she asked.

In Providence, R.I., Mr. Obama framed his views as a test of political courage.

"Real change isn't voting for George Bush's war in Iraq and then telling the American people it was actually a vote for more diplomacy," Mr. Obama told a crowd. "The title of the bill was 'a resolution authorizing the use of the United States armed forces against Iraq.' That sounds like you were voting for authorizing the use of armed forces against Iraq."

In the front row was former GOP Sen. Lincoln Chafee, who bucked his party by opposing the resolution. He has given up his affiliation and endorsed Mr. Obama.

"I knew what it was. Lincoln Chafee knew what it was. It was a vote for war. ... He knew what the score was," Mr. Obama intoned, and the crowd gave a huge cheer.

•Barack Obama's team cites a jump in turnout among blacks in Dallas and Houston. And sizable increases in some Republican-dominated counties suggest he may be pulling independents into the Democratic primary.

•Hillary Rodham Clinton's camp is buoyed by signs of a big early vote in heavily Hispanic South Texas, and that almost 60 percent of the early voters were women.

From wire reports

SAN ANTONIO – Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton unleashed some "girl power" Saturday, with endorsements from a feisty feminist and desperate housewife. Gloria Steinem was an unannounced guest at a "You Go Girl" fundraiser here, while the Clinton campaign announced that actresses Eva Longoria Parker, one of the stars of Desperate Housewives, and Melanie Griffith will appear with her in Austin at a town-hall meeting to be broadcast statewide Monday night on Fox Sports Southwest
