Senator and Presidential Candidate Barak Obama to visit Puerto Rico!
By: Phillip Arroyo
In what many political analysts consider an interesting move, Senator and Presidential candidate Barak Obama is supposedly said to be visiting Puerto Rico on November 5th, 2007. Although at the moment of this publication, the Senator's visit to the "island of enchantment" is not yet official, it is interesting to see how one of our Democratic Party's superstars may be visiting Puerto Rico in search of support for his campaign.
It is important to point out that the 4 million American citizens of Puerto Rico are disenfranchised and therefore restrained from equal participation in the Presidential election.
Senator Obama's visit to Puerto Rico may be an attempt to garner support among the Puerto Rican constituency that resides in New York, home state of Hillary Clinton, which could trigger a nearby visit of the ex-First Lady shortly after Obama's visit.
