From the LA TImes Political Blog, "Crowd Erupts during Barack Obama Speech, but it's over the mention of Clinton."

Crowd Erupts during Barack Obama Speech, but it's over the mention of Hillary Clinton.



Apparently, while Barack Obama was speaking at a La Raza Rally in San Diego, he happened to mention Hillary Clinton. The crowd cheered loudest at the mention of Hillary Clinton's name.

From what I have heard, La Raza tends to be viewed as an extremist radical group bent on retaking California on behalf of Mexico. If I recall correctly, La Raza advocates Mexican citizens populating California by any means available. Eventually Mexican citizens become the largest ethnicity in California by a landslide and in essence, La Raza's mission of bringing California back to Mexico will be accomplished.

I guess "if you can't beat them, overpopulate them" is the new war cry.

Compared to Bush's war, probably a much smarter way to go, assuming one believes that war, either by military might or rapidly populating an area, is the best way to accomplish change.
