Thanks to my friend Luis Clemens at La Política, I learned today that Boston-native Daniel J. Imperato is running for President in 2008.
But Mr. Imperato is not only running as an independent; he is also calling on “the Spanish American people” to join together to support him. I think Mr. Imperato should truly pitch himself as the candidate of the multicultural crowd. His credentials in this field, according to his Web site, speak for themselves.
In addition to being a presidential hopeful, Mr. Imperato:
Is a Papal Knight and a Knight of Malta
Is a knight of the Orden Bonaria and serves as the organization’s United Nations representative
Was recently ordained as a chaplain for the Latin/African American Chaplains Association and,
Is the Leading Independent Presidential Candidate on “many online sites,” including, The Next Prez, which by the way was canceled in January.
Frankly, I didn’t know Mr. Imperato before today, but he might want to take a cue from a bodega-owner in my neighborhood, José Liberato, whose shop’s slogan is simply brilliant: “Su nombre, José Liberato… Su destino, Vender Barato.”
Think about it, a combination with the presidential hopeful can result in a beautiful slogan for both, the bodega and the campaign:
“Su nombre, José Liberato… Su destino, Vender Barato… Su Candidato, Daniel Imperato!”
