As we prepare for tonight's debate, I find myself reading more articles and information on how the Italian American vote is an important factor to any political candidate's campaign. The Italian Americans make up a large group of influential and back bone votes. We do represent a large group of the immigrants who came to America for a better life and it doesn't just mean Italians.
The Mediterranean factor is a large part of our influence and the political machine has caught onto our stable and influencing votes. By influencing I mean, Italian Americans range from the blue collars to the super influential such as other politicians and top executives. We are diverse. By the way, I love your comments and emails. Again, I'm not a political analyst nor do I claim to be one...so I welcome your thoughts and comments. Also, to my younger Italian American readers, please get active and interactive and watch the debate tonight, your future--our future is on the line.
