From Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a Clinton supporter:
People in my district have a lot of hope. They go to bed hungry, they have trouble heating their homes but they have a lot of hope that things will get better. They don't need more hope, they need help.
From California House Speaker Fabian Nunez, a Clinton supporter:
The issue of race is simply not an issue [for the latino community.] Latinos favor Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama not because he's black and she's white but because they're familiar with her and remember that the Clintons brought home the bacon for the latino community.
I'm gonna try to get into some of the Obama spin scrums now...
