The title is misleading. I expected a special emphasis on Obama's appeal to Spanish-speaking voters but that was not the case. The Caucasian author simply liked the sound of the word so he used it as the title.
Hertzberg is a staff writer & editor of the New Yorker magazine and this book is a collection of his columns about George Bush, the 2008 presidential campaign, and Barack Obama. I imagine I would've loved the columns had I read them bit by bit when Bush was president and as the 2008 campaign proceeded but, at this late date (July 2010), it is all old news. To Obamaites such as myself, the book doesn't provide any new information. I appreciate the author's passion about Obama; I share it. But the book will be more important as a historical record as time passes than it is now when all of what happened is still fresh in our minds.
