This is not an endorsement for Barack Obama, although ...

... it is looking as if he now stands a good chance of getting the Democratic Party nomination for the forthcoming US Presidential elections. However, as I'm in Spain at the moment, this YouTube propaganda on behalf of the Illinois Senator by some Mexican-Americans in Texas seems timely enough, with the next round of State Primaries about to take place on 4th March. It's a lively tune and if nothing else it exposes me to just a little more of the Spanish language at a level that even I can follow pretty easily (even without the helpful Karaoke-style sub-titles!):

(thru Andrew Sullivan)

PS/ As I indicated here, I'm abstaining from any substantive comment on the potential candidates for the US Presidency until they are actually selected by their respective nominating committee.
