    ME TOO! Well, I sort of have to hedge my bet on “barely” remember President Kennedy. I do remember him riding down my neighborhood street (which is now called MLK Drive, so you know where that’s at) during his election campaign.
    But today I am just stopping by to tell you 3 chics that your passion is to die for. I can feel y’alls enthusiasm in your words and I know the time and effort it takes to maintain your blog. One post had about 100 comments, so clicked in to see what was going on. When I got there I was going to wash my hands and grab me a piece of chicken. I mean, much of the conversation was between you 3, like you were in the kitchen fixing food for a little get together. Y’all was smiling and laughing and having a good ol time, while talking politics.! I said to myself…. “these women sho like doing what they do” . I felt kind of like a window peeping voyeur, but that didn’t stop me and my rabbit ears from being the spook who sat by the door. I startered to yell… “TAKE IT ALL OFF”, but I didn’t want to give away my hiding place :-)

    So you 3chics, keep doing what you do and I’ll continue to stop by. But be forewarned, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, however, this ain’t Vegas so be careful. But your secrets are safe with me. So if you hear cat calls, whistles, and loud WOOF WOOFs‘, it’s just me, CareyCarey, the guy who loves looking in on my 3chicspolitico.

  10. Obama to make first presidential visit to Puerto Rico since JFK

    MIAMI — Barack Obama will pay Puerto Rico its first official U.S. presidential visit in 50 years on Tuesday, delivering remarks aimed at an important slice of Hispanic voters back home who could aid his chances in 2012.

    Puerto Ricans are an important voting bloc in Florida, where they could help Obama balance out the sway of Republican-leaning Cubans in this battleground state, which he won in 2008 and needs next year to help seal a second White House term.

    “There is a lot of excitement down here,” said Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuna, adding that he hoped Obama would acknowledge the contribution Puerto Ricans have made to the U.S. armed forces as well as talk about the imperative of job creation.

    Some 4.6 million Puerto Ricans live in the United States, where they can vote in U.S. presidential elections, outnumbering the 3.9 million on the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, who can only vote in the presidential primaries.

    This could be decisive next year in Florida, where Obama beat his Republican challenger John McCain in 2008 by more than 200,000 votes, or 2.5 percentage points, but where opinion polls show the state is now a toss up.
