This is an interesting article in the New York Times about San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro. It's interesting that they are already looking at him as a national candidate. When he ran for mayor many people accused him of using the Mayor's office as a stepping stone to wider office. He claims that he plans on being Mayor for as long as SA will have him. I think he probably will try to fill out his term limits. As for future office, he's only 35, he should have a long career ahead of him. He seems to be fairly pragmatic, which I like in a politician. Radicals and reactionaries never make very good leaders for government. I believe in a more middle of the road approach.
