The Mexican Elections
The Presidential election in Mexico is getting to be a real nail-biter. As of this writing, Lopez Obrador leads by a sliver over Felipe Calderon but the difference is closing. Not clear whether it will close enough. See Mark in Mexico (who's liveblogging the count) and El Universal, which is posting updates regularly (the Spanish is self-explanatory). The outcome will have a lot of bearing on the immigration debate.
With nearly all the ballots counted, Felipe Calderon has a wafer-thin lead, in the tenths of a percent, so thin that I'm practically certain this election will be contested.
