This YouTube clip has been making the rounds in the Latino blogsphere showing what has been going on with the questionnaire that the pro-migrant bloggers at The Sanctuary sent out to the presidential candidates about six weeks ago.
Barack Obama’s campaign has answered the questionnaire, and John McCain’s campaign hasn’t. Instead of putting someone to work to address the 38 questions, Team McCain decided to send Leslie Sanchez (who isn’t even formally affiliated with his campaign) to address the issues of the Latino community on CNN.
Latest word is that the results to the questionnaire will be released this week. I’m so thankful that Latinos are becoming more active in the blogsphere because we need to make our presence known and demand answers to substantive questions when some in our traditional leadership aren’t.
I, along with some of my readers, thought that the questionnaire would be ignored or pushed to the side, but I am thankful that Obama’s campaign responded. That news is definitely encouraging.
