Latino Vote

NPR's John Burnett reports from Houston, Texas, on this week's convention of the National Council of La Raza, the largest Hispanic advocacy group in the United States. The Latino vote is expected to be more important than ever in next year's Presidential election. Candidates Al Gore and John McCain spoke to the convention. Even though George Bush did not attend questions about his absence dominated the talk around the George Brown Convention Center.
