If you haven't heard, Puerto Ricans, who, while living on the island, anyway, don't vote for American presidents, do get to vote in primaries, and have more delegates than most US states. The island is actually going to matter in this year's very close Democratic primary -- and apparently (according to Juan Gonzalez on Democracy Now! today), Puerto Ricans couldn't possibly care less: our parties mean nothing to them, and they don't get excited about voting in a primary for an election they won't be a part of in November. Still, the campaigns are active the Caribbean: yet another historic turn in the 2008 election.
