LOS ANGELES When Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa gavels the 2012 Democratic National Convention into session in Charlotte this September, his role as prominent cheerleader for President Obama will be clear. It is less clear, for now, if Villaraigosa has designs on the ultimate convention role in 2016--taking center stage to accept his party's nomination on the final night. Despite running the country's second largest city and coming from the fastest growing voting demographic in America, the mayor himself is quick to wave off talk of a presidential run. "The answer is no," Villaraigosa replied when asked by Yahoo News if he wanted to be president one day. "I want to finish this job with a bang. I want to go out with my head up high. I want to say to this city, 'I put everything into this job,'" he added.

He’d do to the rest of the US what he did for L.A. — nothing very good at all.
He make Clinton look celibate.
And what'd THAT be, Tony? The cessation of California to Mexico? You think that's happening because of YOU?
If you want to complete the bankruptcy of America elect the guy who bankrupted LA.
You’re right. He’s actually more of a narcissistic sociopathic megalomaniac than 0bama is (if that’s possible).. Villar LOVES those television cameras!!!
poised to be Americas first Latino president?
Are crap sandwiches delicious?
Anyhow, isn’t mitt Latino?
To be honest, the chances of this happening may be greater than we think... Prior to 2008, I’d have thought, “no way” as well.
He would be the fast track to third world status for sure!
Not no way, not no how!..........
Just the act of posing that question indicates how very low 0bama has dragged the bar.
I know us domb folk here in Floriduh ain’t the smartest VOTERS out there but least we haven’t fallen for crappola like Villaraigosa, Emanuel, or Bloomberg. Don’t think any of the rest of the south, mid west or nearly any other area will go for that either.
The other day on KFI in L.A. the news mikes were on before Tony knew it so he was babbling about which camera to look into and if he should wear sun glasses for a better look...This dufus pin head makes Patty Murray, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi look like Mensa members!
He was born in East Los Angeles to a Mexican-immigrant father and California-born mother of Mexican descent. Raised by a single mom from age 5, Villaraigosa participated in the first grape boycott led by César Chávez, graduated from night school, went to law school, and became a prominent labor organizer."
I've not determined if either of his parents were even United States Citizens at the time of his birth. Both parents would have to have been U.S. Citizens at the time of his birth to meet the United States Constitution's natural born Citizen requirement under Article II.
If a guy that’s not even a proven citizen can be president, this a-hole probably has a better than 50/50 chance.
He’ll be sold as being the first Latino president. If last election is any indication, that should get him 10 to 15% of the vote right there.
Of course well meaning Republicans will have to chip in to be a part of history again, and folks will have to ignore the fact he has a terrible track record.
At least he has one. Obama had nothing, absolutely nothing to validate him as presidential material.
You and I and others will explain what an idiot he is, and we’ll be mostly ignored.
At least he won’t be running on the Republican ticket. At least I hope not. These days you never know.
