Bill is Cometh

It boggles my mind why Puerto Rico is part of the battle field in the Democratic presidential nomination process, since residents in the "Island of Enchantment" are not allowed to vote for the President of the U.S. In fact, Puerto Rico has 67 delegates up for grabs, and we'll find out whether the majority of them belong to Obama or to Hillary on June 1st. Isn't it bizarre how Puerto Ricans can help select the Democratic presidential candidate but can't vote in the general U.S presidential elections?

Well, as we all know, the race between the two Democratic candidate hopefuls has been neck in neck and every delegate counts. Both Obama and Hillary are sending their spouses here. So, Bill will be visiting this weekend to help gather up support, momentum, and (of course) money! He's scheduled to appear in several events, one of which is hosted by the Puerto Rico's Manufacturer's Assocation. Michelle Obama is said to be coming sometime in May. Stay tuned, the battle continues.

Puerto Ricans can only vote in the Democratic primary?
