Mexicans Eschew Leftists

Sphere: Related Content

It seems that the coming communist revolution so hoped for by the leftists of the world will wait a bit longer:

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's conservative presidential candidate Felipe Calderon declared victory on Monday in a bitterly contested election and official returns appeared to show his leftist rival could no longer catch him.

Calderon had a lead of almost 400,000 votes over Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador with returns in from almost 98 percent of polling stations and a senior election official said it was unlikely to change with a recount ordered for later this week.

A Calderon victory would ensure Mexico sticks to the free-market policies of outgoing President Vicente Fox and hold steady as a U.S. ally, bucking a trend of Latin American nations who have turned to the left and away from Washington in recent years.

And here liberals keep telling me that free-market policies are a bad thing. I guess Mexicans don't think so.

Just a question; do they use Diebold machines in Mexico? I imagine that will give the sniveling libs something to scream about if they did.
