    I am tired of listening to CNN devoting valuable time discussing race and what effect it is going to have on Tuesday's election. Don't you people at CNN think it is time to move on. It is not as if you are urging voters to refrain from using race as the tool to guide their vote for any of the candidates since that will really be tragic. Please let the sleeping dog rest. I seem to get the impression you are just making matters worse by your overblown repetitions.

    Latino voters are tired of being ignored. J. McCain not only ignored the Latinos but also the middle class until he felt it was beneficial FOR him.

    He also added Joe- whose name is Samuel to his campaign, knowing fully that he is an not a licensed plumber, unemployed, taxing owing, liar who never had money to buy his own business. It's really strange that this so-called plumber lived in Alaska for 4 years- doesn't anybody care that he was a 'plant' by Todd and Sarah Palin??

    McCain came from being a hero to being a zero in most of the latino people's eyes. All the negative, bigoted ads- what a shame!

    Lo siento mucho! Adios McCain and brainless Sarah.

    The Latino vote help carry Bush in a major way in 2004. Now they are almost complete in their support for Obama, although McCain shares the same views on immigration. What did the republican party(mainly Bush)do to have them move to the left. Latinos are mostly pro-life, concervatives.Yet the would give up those for Obama. Must be the campaigns, and the message...
