The 2008 Election in Indian Country: An "In The Loop" conversation (and interactive map)
We've already heard plenty, and we're sure to hear more, about how the black vote, the Hispanic vote, the Boomer vote, and the youth vote will affect this year's election.
"In The Loop" host Jeff Horwich invited a panel of engaged American Indians from various tribes and political backgrounds to talk with us about what candidates, issues, and themes are resonating in their communities.
What matters most: Barack Obama's background? John McCain's long experience in Indian affairs? Hillary Clinton's detailed policy proposals for Indian Country? And what issues will they have to take on to win the respect of Indian voters?
Are you an American Indian, or engaged with politics in Indian communities? We want to get your take. Send us your insights, and we'll add you to the map below. We've gotten it started with some thoughts from members of our panel. (Not from Minnesota? No problem! Share your experiences and we'll expand the map.)
