AMLO gaining in Mexico

Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) is gaining fast in polls in Mexico. The poll currently shows AMLO at 35%, with his main rival, Felipe Calderón, at 32%. Given that the margin of error is 3.1%, this puts the two virutally neck-in-neck. The election is scheduled fo July 2nd.

AMLO is no Chavez, but his election will further unsettle Latin America watchers in DC. Recently, AMLO took a pretty strong anti-NAFTA stance. That especially will worry the US administration. It would worry a Democratic administration too...

Update: excellent analysis here.

Rann, we really do, we miss you very much too, and we don't like those nasty people who say bad things about you. We are your friends and you probably guess who we are...

C'mon Rann, Israel has gone totally bonkers even by my standards, and this blog has nothing to say?

Really interesting blog about acid essential fatty loss weight. In a similar vain to acid essential fatty loss weight, I've found the richest, purest omega-3 EFP fish oil supplement on the market. My health has improved dramatically - both physical and mental. I've been taking MorEPA now for about 6 months and I cannot emphasize how much this supplement have helped me to cope with anxiety and depression. The supplements can be ordered from **wwwomega3.com**. I'd also recommend daily exercise.
