    that the Republicans, in forging a new populist vision(something I think is inevitable), will opt for a nastily xenophobic, anti-hispanic brand of demagoguery. Figure the Pubbies will be forced by electoral realities to show more solicitude to the expanding ranks of the poor, but that their solicitude will be strictly limited to American citizens. If this vision becomes reality, hispanics, and most especially hispanics here without valid legal status, will be subject to intense vilification, and possibly even worse. Can see this playing out in an extremely ugly fashion.

      They're a minority and a shrinking one. There is some chance of a 'revival' of sorts swelling the ranks and what happens depends very much on how the Obama administration handles drawing the fangs of the corporate media.
