50. I agree that won't work - and I agree that this is CNN trying to make Romney "more diverse"

but no Hispanic will think that the Romney ancestors having been American ex=pats in Mexico makes them Hispanic.

Did African Americans consider Teresa Heinz Kerry an African American? There was actually more justification for that as she did grow up in Africa. However, I think the fact that she protested apartheid in South Africa as a college student had more appeal than just being born there. She was born in Mozambique and became an American citizen after she married John Heinz. Kerry, like all Democrats, got the lion's share of black votes, but that was due to his record.
