Livin’ La Vida Clinton

Martin endorsed Clinton Thursday.
Martin endorsed Clinton Thursday.

(CNN) – Puerto Rican pop star Ricky Martin said Thursday that he will shake his bon-bon for Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic nomination.

“Whether fighting for better education, universal health care and social well-being, as First Lady and Senator from New York - representing millions of Latinos –she has always fought for what is most important for our families," Martin said.

Clinton said she was honored to earn the Grammy Award winner’s support.

“He is a very important voice in the Latino community and together we will work to improve the lives of families and children across the country,” Clinton said in a statement.

Puerto Rican voters head to the polls Sunday.

    Does anyone really care about Ricky Martin and PR for that matter. Come on people. I don't expect PRicans to vote for Obama for this reason alone: if Hillary was running up against a Hispanic candidate, African Americans would probably be rallying behind Hillary because she has done so much for African Americans. Oh people give me a break!!!

    Oh well...since they can not vote in the general it doesn't make much sense to even court them. Maybe next time PR. However, go out and vote for Hillary all you want because it really isn't going to matter.

    She should win in this PR primary, her husband help elect their government officials. The government of Puerto Rico has been in Clinton's back pocket all along.

    Maybe Ricky will be Hillary's Monica! Bill failed to deliver her the nomination. In fact, he cost her the election. Seemed that he cared more about his own legacy than helping Hillary. Hillary I think two can tango, so and Ricky have a spin!

  11. What if?

    "Most Dems agree this Delegate/Super Delegate strategy is a waste"

    Most of the dems agree (NOT) that this Delegate/Super Delegate strategy is a waste.

    Let's call it what it is, Hillary didn't win the nominee so now this Delegate/Super Delegate strategy is a waste. It's funny this Delegate/Super Delegate strategy worked to ELECT Bill Clinton as president, TWO TERMS..
