Who is Julian Castro?

Domenico Montanaro has a must-read look at San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro (D) who "will have one of the most prominent speaking slots in American politics when he keynotes the Democratic convention Sept. 4th."

"It's a spot that launched, for example, Barack Obama in 2004 when he was just a fresh-faced 42-year-old state senator from Illinois. So can he live up to the expectations?"

Eleanor Clift: "A nearly unknown minority rising star is picked to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic convention. No, it's not 2004 -- this year's chosen one is Julian Castro, San Antonio's mayor."
