Minuteman For President? Bring It On

I hope this happens. Lets have a real discussion on a national level about the many ways this country has demonized the immigrant community, and by extension, Latinos.
Colorado Republican Rep. Tom Tancredo, an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration, said Tuesday he will form an exploratory committee this week for a possible presidential campaign.

After making a weekend trip to Iowa, home to the first nominating caucus in January 2008, Tancredo said voters there told him other presidential candidates don't share their views.

"They believe that there is a void in this race that none of the other candidates are willing or able to fill," said Tancredo, who plans to remain in the House.

Tancredo has said immigration would be a central issue if he does run. Campaign spokesman Tim Haley said on Tuesday that Tancredo would also push opposition to abortion and other conservative themes as well.


Looks like 2008 is going to be another interesting campaign. If Tancredo runs, he will be battling head-on with St. John McCain on the immigration issue.
