A link to an interesting and informative historical overview of Mexico's current transition to greater democracy and Lopez Obrador's (AMLO) involvement...

Esperanza,
If AMLO is allowed to run, do you think he will be elected and why?
I would be pleased if Dumois would answer this also.
I respect his opinion as well as yours.

Although this Blog is of course a personal reflection the timeline is factual the reflections are intriguing. Also the comments of others were revealing, especially the NAFTA and "gringoization" comments. Both thoughts get play here in this forum, but always with a "rosy" tint, interesting to read a tint not so rosy.

Most of all I appreciate the referral to the site and plan to do a lot of wandering around, and back reading of this guys blogs on Mexico.

Gotta love the internet.

Frank, if you are referring to the recent unpleasantness between AMLO and the Fox administration, they have made peace and all charges against AMLO have been dropped. It appears now that that situation will not prevent AMLO from running for president of Mexico.

The Mexican presidential elections will take place in July 2006, more than a year from now. So much could happen to a candidacy (as well as to a candidate) between now and then that I am hesitant to offer my opinion right now. Furthermore, we don't yet know who will be running for the PRI or for the PAN. Ask me again in October.

Having said that, what I have heard on the street is that although AMLO has a tremendous amount of popular support, he lacks the support from the old guard (and the big money) that will be necessary to carry the day next year.

Ya veremos.

Regardless of who runs or who wins, it looks like the Dedazo is becoming dedeadzo.
