Obama in New Mexico – but did did he choose “Red” or “Green”?

Obama was in Bernalillo and Espanola, New Mexico yesterday for a rally that drew a crowd twice the size of the town. This trip underscores the importance of the Latino vote — Obama has opened more offices in the state of NM than it has counties! The tricky part for Obama, though, is to understand the culture of the southwest. A goodly majority of us are not immigrants and get kinda perturbed being lumped into the “immigrant dream” narrative. My guy Bill Richardson is pulling out all the stops to support the Obama campaign. I’m glad to see the DNC has taken an approach of ignoring Sarah “Freakazoid” Paliln and moving on with the job of getting votes.

Do you know the answer to New Mexico’s state question? “Red or Green?”
