Classic MayorSam: Mayor Loses His Democratic Mojo
It's not a good week for Mayor Villaraigosa when it comes to being a Democratic party superstar.
First off the Mayor was passed over for a speaking spot at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Next Barack Obama didn't pick the Mayor for his Latino- but Bill Clinton was chosen. Finally Villaraigosa's home state Democratic rival Gavin Newsom will be hosting a big deal.
Speculation is rampant that the Obama campaign wants to distance themselves from the Mayor due to his high-profile extamarital affair with former TV newswoman Mirthala Salinas.
Not to worry, I think Antonio's sharing a room with Bill Rosendahl and Jack Weiss at the Days Inn and will be on a panel discussion on "travel tips" Sunday before the Convention starts.
