Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders for Hillary ’08

Hillary AAPIOne of my friends is the most politically active American (let alone Asian American) I know – Sophia (and her husband) recently launch their website, Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders for Hillary ’08 (

Although Asian Americans make up about 5% of the U.S. population, in California, Asian Americans make up 12%. If you’ve been following the political commentary on Super Tuesday in California, Hillary Clinton won the Asian American vote 75% to Barack Obama’s 25% – leading many pundits to ask, Does Obama Have an Asian Problem?

The big test for Clinton is in the next week and a half with the Texas and Ohio primary – where Asian Americans constitutes 3.6% of Texas and 1.7% of Ohio.

I’ve mentioned a past event for Asian Americans for Obama already, so thought I’d let others know about a blog for Hillary. If there are any Asian Americans for John McCain sites or blogs out there, let me know.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
