ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THE ELECTION WON'T BE CLOSE...:

McCain courts Hispanic voters (Stephen Dinan, May 6, 2008, Washington Times)

Using a Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo, as a launching point, Mr. McCain's presidential campaign announced a Spanish-language Web site (www.johnmccain.com/ espanol), and said the senator from Arizona will speak to this year's National Council of La Raza convention in San Diego in July to try to court Hispanic voters.

"I believe the majority of the Hispanics share our view that the border must be secured, and the border must be secured first. But they also want us to have an attitude, which I think most Americans do, that these are God's children, and they must be taken care of, and the issue must be addressed in a humane and compassionate fashion," Mr. McCain told reporters at an Arizona news conference yesterday.

Hispanic support for President Bush in the 2004 election topped 40 percent by most estimates, but has fallen in the wake of the congressional immigration debate.


...is that Maverick will top 50%. And Jeb can do even better next time around.
