  •  Not sure where your information.... (4.00)
    is coming from about Obrador only being popular in DF. When Obrador traveled to the Yucatan (Yucatan, Campeche & Quintana Roo), he was mobbed in the pueblitos.  He is wildly popular in many areas of Mexico.

    Making a statement like "Obrador is corrupt" doesn't prove anything.  You can make a list of corruption a mile long on any of Mexico's presidential candidates, including several of the green party leaders.  Of course, the fact that you can easily draw up similar lists of crooked Republicans and Democrats in today's US Congress hasn't escaped you, has it?

    Let's hope the Abramoff scandal clears out the crooks.  But in the meantime, after Abramhoff, DeLay, Enron, Ney, Cunningham, Bush, Cheney, Brownie boy, Halliburton, Kellogg-Root-Brown, etc.... it is hard to gain traction denouncing other nation's candidates as corrupt.

      Genetically create a workplace-related virus that kills off every politician, professional athlete, and TV star.

      Seriously though, I know the U.S. government is corrupt, it's the most corrupt in the world.  My only hope is to be able to vote for people who are the least corrupt because even the Democrats are whores.  However, I still don't like Lopez Obrador, even if he is "Chilango of the Year" on the front of magazines and such.  Fortunately I am not a Mexican citizen, so I don't have to pick between any of them.  Unfortunately I am a U.S. citizen, and people that I vote for do not get elected.
