nationally syndicated

"What happened here last weekend when about 300 Arab Americans
from all parts of the country gathered in this Detroit suburb was
another chapter in one of the unnoticed glories of American
life -- the entry of yet another immigrant group into the
mainstream of the nation's politics

With the chairman of President Bush's reelection campaign
and virtually all the Democratic presidential hopefuls
journeying here .... , Zogby said, "We have come a long,
long way" -- and almost all of the journey occurred in two decades.

... but in politics, the ruthless mathematics of elections -- the
simple fact that every vote counts as much as every other ... That
is how the Irish, the Italians, the Poles and other 19th-century
became mayors and congressmen often replacing
Yankees in those posts. "
