preparing for the democrats - we do know that bill clinton and michelle obama will be speaking - the mayor of san antonio julian castro will be the keynote speaker - but the new mexico delegates - all fifty of them - know that it's barack obama's show. " The public - especially in the state of New Mexico - already knows what he's like - he doesn't have to do anything else to change - he has to tell them what the goals are - what the focus is - and how we're gonna move the economy forward." THE president's campaign team here in albuquerque expects to hear a lot about obamacare and about protecting medicare and medicaid and student loans from republican BUDGET CUTS. " The issues that affect those of us who are regular working people day in and day out - making sure that everyone has a job - everyone pays their fair share of tax - that there are no gimmes for the extra rich." AND so it's on to charlotte now where for a few days at least politics will take precedence over barbecue and basketball.
