    Ah, yes. Bush was telling us gringos that Hispanics have superior family values. Here they are in action:

    But the telegenic Villaraigosa, one of the highest-profile Latino politicians in America and a likely future candidate for governor, has been the undisputed star. Shortly after his election as the first Latino mayor of modern Los Angeles, he made the cover of Newsweek, with the headline: "Latino Power." Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton bragged in May when she snared his endorsement.

    In recent weeks, though, pride has turned to disappointment and wariness among some Latino voters as two promising political stars landed in the headlines at the same time for all the wrong reasons — Villaraigosa for his infidelity and Delgadillo for a widening scandal that included his wife's banging up a city car, driving with a suspended license and ignoring a warrant for her arrest.

    Sounds like nothing more than goes on with most politicians throughout the country.

    ITA we are to be a nation indivisible. I'm guessing most are forgetting that. Or maybe even where never taught the importance of it.
