President Obama has a new shadow.  Team Romney is kicking off the general election with a strategy called "bracketing." Essentially, it means photocopying the President's schedule and showing up everywhere the President goes -- before, during and after the event takes place.

As the media focuses on a flurry of new poll numbers that show Mitt Romney gaining steam as the GOP coalesces behind the presumptive nominee, there's increasing focus on the Latino vote. While we might sound like a broken record, this increasingly large voting bloc (forecast to be over 10 million votes in November) has enormous sway.
