The next six months will be full of politics on the TV, radio, newspaper, web and everything in between. I would suggest you be well-informed and make up your own point of view of what happens in the world of politics (the only world that is crazier than advertising). Start checking out POLITICO.COM, a great website with a wide coverage of this year’s presidential election and all the issues that make the news. The website includes political bloggers across the political spectrum. Hopefully you’ll find them informative and entertaining. –Pavel

Or should Latinos, like African-Americans, work through attaining parity in the existing categories? –Ramon

The link above will tell you everything you need to know. –Michelle
