Hillary En Espanol

With one week until the crucial Texas primary, Hillary Clinton has a Spanish-language theme song to help woo Latino support.

The song is by Walter Suhr and the Mango Punch, and introduced by Tejano musician Johnny Canales.

A rough translation of the song:

"Hillary, Hillary Cliiiiinnnnton... We need a change. We need to improve. She's the only candidate that can do that. She has the experience. Her husband has already governed. ..

"We need a president that can end the war, and give health care to the people of this land. ... I don't think twice about voting for Hillary. ...

How terribly sexist is HILLARY CLINTON! She is making her case for President by saying she is qualified because "her husband already governed"?? It's not the media perpetuating sexism, it's Hillary's campaign itself! Shame on you for teaching young girls everywhere that the only way they can get into the White House is by virtue of their husbands' prior experience. As we say in Spanish- "es vergonzoso", it's shameful!

Just because Hilary created a song dedicated to Hispanic voters it does not mean that they will vote for her. This just shows how desperate she is to get some votes in the easy way. She might as well just say that Hispanics are easier to manipulate. And from what I know she will probably get some votes but not as many to win this campaign. Instead of encouraging Hispanics Mrs. Clinton would most likely be offending other ethnicities.

No, they will likely vote for her because of NAFTA and the fact they never really trusted Obama. She has a lot of work to do though, for many are moving over to Barack, of all sorts:

It's like a campaign video that Mayor Quimby would produce!

Silly. Ineffective. This campaign wastes money like it's 1996!

I can't even believe she had this written. I've always liked Hillary Clinton and her policies, but this is one of the many reasons that I won't vote for her.

You can't trick people into thinking you will be a good leader; or rather, hopefully you can't trick most people to think that. Well, at this point anyway, yo creo que Hillary Clinton tendrá que trabajar más intelligente si quisiera ganar.
