Ramos: Road to White House Runs Through Univision

Broadcasting & Cable, Posted: Oct 30, 2008

NEW YORK--Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos was honored with the Broadcasting & Cable / Multichannel News Lifetime of Achievement in Hispanic Television award last week. In his acceptance speech at the Sixth Annual Hispanic Television Summit, Ramos declared, Nobody can make it to the White House without Univision... If Barack Obama or John McCain want to win Florida or Nevada, they have to talk to us. Ramos, who has interviewed both candidates, described Obama as almost spiritual and calm, and McCain as experienced" and "warrior-like." Ramos also descibed his impression of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin: Shes no expert on Latino American issues or international relations but she did her homework. You might only see this politician who has been portrayed in a certain way but what I saw was a mother.

Ramos also responded to the attention the campaigns have given the Hispanic community. Neither Obama or McCain or Biden or Palin have been talking about immigration lately, and I think its fantastic, he said. Latinos only get recognized once every four years in America, when politicians realize that they are going to need our vote. They start to visit our communities, and speak about immigration and learn a couple of phrases in Spanish, but its only once every four years. For the first time with this election the Hispanic community has been able to get something for our vote. Nobodys talking about immigration because they all realize that something has to be done.
