    This is a great first step if Obama is trying to find a way out of the Office of President.

    The "President's Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics?!?" WTF exactly is that? BO thinks that only spics should get good educations? No, it's more pandering to the heaviest breeding people in this country. BO knows his days are numbered so he's courting his most ardent supporters at the expense of YT. Eff Obama and this twat.

    Does it matter if she is an American Citizen, Resident, or has a Visa to work in the United States? What have you done to help our education system? You've done nothing but point fingers and bitch.She was appointed for the position because she knows about education and is doing something about it. Shakira said, "I'm a very inpatient person. I don't like to waste my time or money and I know everyone feels the same way. And believe me, there is no waste when it comes to education."

    First of all, it's more of a responsibility than an honor or a title bestowed. Second, obviously the intent is to get people's attention on the issue of early childhood education and development. Had a qualified, effective hispanic U.S. citizen been appointed none of you would even be be slightly enticed into a conversation related to education. Don't hate, do something positive with your energy and voice.

    @dumb move: true, why not everyday citizens/people. I don't even have the money that she has and yet I cofounded a charity for needy kids. It is about money, I think in order to get a better idea the president needs to get with the everyday people.

    It's "congrats" - short for congratulations. What, please tell me WHAT, she did to deserve this. There a thousands of Hispanic US Citizens better deserving and qualified. US Government appoints Colombian National to position to "help" US kids. Nonsence. As for Shakira, she's hot, talented, and by all accounts, a very decent person. Still not a US citizen and still in no way more qualified or deserving that many of our US Citizen Hispanic leaders working their tails off everyday to help young Hispanic kids stay in school. Dumb Move Pres.
