I write this article for LA GACETA from Valencia, where I live normally. Other times I’ve done from Frankfurt, Lisbon or Montevideo. They already see what little matter today where the columnist is located. To scale a lot more modest, is the same that make transnational enterprises, which manufacture their products in a site and then sell them in another. The month that comes I will happen backwards: I cover the regional election campaign Valencian and, because of my journeys, the greater part of it will realize it from Palma and Salamanca. And are not created that I’m going to lose anything; on the contrary: thanks to the web pages of the different political parties will know more about their programs, their candidates and their rallies that if had gone to the places where they are held, with poor PA many times and smelling addition sweat from the staff. For journalists, I admit, the Internet is a real bargain and I’ve almost forgotten how information was done before the invention. I will very briefly explain how it works in my case.

After a couple of hours of navigation, through the pages of LA GACETA and other digital media know each morning everything that happens in Salamanca although I find me pongo per case, in New York. In fact, I hear more things than when ride by Rua or the square. Then, without one intending it, comes the avalanche of a leafy e-mail composed of different sceneries, press releases blogs for parties, institutions, associations of immigrants, cultural groups, foundations, professional associations, etc., etc.. Tell them that barely time left me to go to the street to times, I confess, when I wake up in the morning I don’t know very well in what city I am because in this global world news are the same everywhere and the lack of cybernetic frontiers blurs the physical space in which one is found. Also, they are not created, I go out sometimes in my house, my hotel or whatever the room from which you write. For example, to go to any television tertulia. And thanks to the Internet I have never been as prepared as they are now, knowing the news of the last minute and life entire of my fellow members and guests to the program of that day. Therefore, when someone asks me where alive, I hesitate before answering, and not by my current dichotomy between Salamanca and Valencia, but because my home, sweet home, like so many people today, is actually called Internet.

Monterrey, N.L., Mexico.-Hilary Clinton outperforms Barak Obama with victories in California and New York and is shaping up for the next two contests in the big States of Texas and Ohio where his ultimate triumph depends on the Latino Power. Obama won more States than Clinton, Yes, but not have the demographic weight of other States such as California, New York and New Jersey, where he won the Democratic candidate. The surprise was Massachusets, cradle of the Clan kennedy who openly supports the Senator from Illinois where Hilary proved successful. The fight is waged and although Hilary Outpaces, intricate democratic system appear to be tied. Reach nearly tied, another system would be triggered: the super delegates.

And there, to draw, win Clinton who has more super delegates in favor than those achieved by Obama. There was never a so tight fight between the Democratic candidates and also never weighed both the votes of latinos in the United States in an undeniable advance. But politicians have to measure them by the tone of his speeches and the two contrasted notably: a successful, safe, landslide, Hilary before a repetitive Obama: the whisper became a voice that can be heard across America without the emotion of past victories. Even so, the numbers don’t lie. Hilary leads 845 delegates to the bag while Obama does the same thing with 765 delegates, a minimal difference.

If we analyse what has been achieved by the Republicans, the differences are appreciated: McCaine carrying 613 against Huckabee 190 and 269 for Romney. Way to go and Obama won 13 States has hope of becoming the first candidate of color, but soon it will have to convince the Latino Power which seems to be with Hilary and his promises about immigration policy. 4 The carrier of March Ohio and Texas will define the Democratic candidate.
