Well, hey, San Antonio mayor Henry Cisneros used the same Cabinet post to launch himself on a public and private career that culminated in this January 2005 Countrywide press release: “Countrywide Expands Commitment to $1 Trillion in Home Loans to Minority and Lower-Income Borrowers.” So, let’s go back to the well and get another Hispanic San Antonio “mayor.”

I wrote about how the Democratic establishment was prepping Castro to be the Hispanic Obama in VDARE in May 2010:

“Who Is Julian Castro And Why Is He Being Touted As The Next Minority President?”

For some reason, Julian’s identical twin brother Rep. Joaquin Castro doesn’t get quite as much Presidential Timberhood adulation. I wonder if that is a source of sibling rivalry?
