YouTube: Clinton's Campaign Co-Chair Fabian Nunez on Election '08 (Power of Latinos)
HILLARY CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN CO-CHAIR FABIAN "NUCKLEHEAD" NUNEZ DECLARES YOU NEED THE HISPANIC VOTE TO WIN: "ASK ANGELIDES...AND IF YOU WANNA ADVANCE AN AGENDA FOR AMERICA YOU GOTTA INCLUDE THESE (LATINO) THINGS IN IT." - Nunez
COMPLETE CLIP TRANSCRIPT: "This is the most important gathering of Latinos across the country, in my own opinion, since the civil rights movement of the late 1960's. And what comes out of this conference, the positions that people take on issues with respect to housing; with respect to jobs; with respect to health care...all these things are going to be very, very critical...the environment...to the political agendas of those who want to "rub shoulders" with the Latinos in this country.
And in California, in particular, I can tell you, ask Phil Angeledis and he'll tell you; if he has the Latino vote, he'll win. Ask Governor Schwarzenegger and he'll tell you; if he gets 30% of the Latino vote, he thinks he can win the election. So the political power of "our" community has grown exponentially. [I didn't know he was elected to the Assembly to represent a "certain" community!?!]
It's time for use to not only look at the politics, but look at vehicles within...we can say, these are cohesive platform points that are important to Latinos...and if you want to advance an agenda for America, you gotta include these things in it.
And the beautiful thing about it is; there's no difference between the Latino agenda and the working class agenda for people in this country. So I think this is gonna set a very important precedent for the future, for not only the political movement of this country, but the particular platforms of the particular parties. So I'm excited for it." - California State Assembly President/Clinton Co-Chair, Fabian Nunez
