  •  So great to see Maya (9+ / 0-)

    In the weeks before the California primary I asked the California Asian outreach coordinator about her, whether we could get her to come out and speak in Asian communities. He said that Maya and her husband have a young child and were in the middle of a teacher education program of some sort, that they couldn't get out of. I was so disappointed, because I really thought that she and her husband (who's Chinese-Canadian if you saw the video) could do a lot to dispel any fears and/or misconceptions about Obama in the Asian community. Well, hopefully, she'll be freed up in time for the general election campaign because she's a great surrogate for him!
