President Barack Obama has overwhelming support from the Latino community, according to a new study conducted by the University of Washington.
Matt Barreto, an assistant professor of political science who is the poll's lead researcher, says, "President Obama campaigned heavily for the Latino vote in 2008 and remains very popular. In his first 100 days, he has appointed two Latinos to his inner circle and said immigration reform will be a priority in year one."

After being fired and blamed (unfairly, we might add) for the demise of Hillary Clinton's presidential aspirations, she wisely joined up with President Barack Obama's camp when he secured the Democratic Party's nomination. Unfortunately for Solis Doyle, there didn't seem to be much room left at the top when Obama took office and she once again found herself out of work.
