Obama reaching out to Hispanics



For all the attention on the Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama meeting with top Clinton bundlers last night, a smaller meeting yesterday afternoon in DC between Obama, Clinton and about 40 of Clinton's most loyal Hispanic supporters has been largely overlooked. Ana Cruz of Tampa, who has been skeptical of Obama's outreach to Clinton backers, was there along with former Ambassador Luis Lauredo of Miami. Cruz said a gracious, humble Obama really impressed the gathering and that Clinton and her supporters, many still raw over the former first lady's loss, basically told Obama to tell help them help him win.
