Why is the latest presidential debate different from all the others? It’s being broadcast only in Spanish, with English subtitles. El Diario-La Prensa’s Alberto Vourvoulias-Bush discusses the importance of the Latino vote in both parties’ primaries and how the Democrats did at the Univision debate. Also, how $9.0 Billion went missing in Iraq; taking fashion seriously; and one father tries to answer all his young son’s questions.
