I have no idea (the election)

According to the International Herald Tribune, Calderón is still the one to beat, but the Mexican press is reporting on a new development that could change everything. PRI candidate Roberto Madrazo Pintado suggested over the weekend that PRI MIGHT ally itself with PRD against what he sees as administration interference in the election (kinda ironic, coming from the PRI, which never had any compunctions about that before). Even Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas is seriously mulling it over. AND... what effect the U.S. Senate's considerations of Immigration will have (any U.S. media source) will have on the Mexican elections is still uncertain. Fred Rosen, in today's Mexico Herald sees U.S. policy as undermining the Fox administration -- and, I'd venture, making Calderón less and less the people's choice. I'm waiting for the next debate (6 June) to see what happens next. Stay tuned.
