Texas is going blue, the only question is how soon. Finally Texas Democrats have future candidates who are five-star, first-rate and powerful. I have written about Casto before. He is a superb mayor, fantastic candidate and intellectually brilliant man of the people. Obama made an inspired choice selecting Castro to give the keynote speech at the Democratic convention. One minute after leaves the podium, my colleagues in the media, who often have a short attention span, will be describing Castro as a potential future president.
Clinton would be the turnkey candidate turning Texas blue in a long-term realignment, if she runs in 2016. If Palin could not handle Katie Couric in 2008, it would be an unfair fight if she runs against Clinton in 2016. It would be Clinton by a knockout in Texas.
