So much for soccer moms and Nascar dads — Navajo leaders might be a key demographic presidential candidates should target. "A lot of us leave it up to the Navajo nation to make the decision for us," Native American actor Adam Beach told us last week at the premiere party for HBO's Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, in which he stars. He's a Canadian, but he told us Native Americans in the United States tend to vote as a bloc, and they all look to the Navajo for guidance. "The Navajo nation is a very powerful nation when it comes to tradition, when it comes to language, when it comes to maintaining their identity," he said during the party at the Museum of Natural History on the Upper West Side. "And as a people they're very well connected with each other. So when they elect, it's as a whole nation. No other nation is as collectively put together, so we're very much with their decision." But Hillary, Obama, and Rudy shouldn't get worried they've missed their chance. In fact, they've got plenty of time to lock up this vote, Beach said. "It comes around to the actual week, you know?" —Bennett Marcus
