    I think, in his urgently-needed outreach to Latinos, the fact that his Father was an immigrant will resonate.  I hadn't thought about that.

    I had once taken in two Mejicanos, and, as I was teaching them some English, one asked if I kind of looked down on them.  Surprised, I replied (in Spanish, of course) "Are you kidding?  When my grandfather arrived here, he had very little money in his pocket and didn't speak the language.  We are no different!"  They never wondered, after that, if I respected them.
