Calderon wins...

It looks like PAN has managed to win the presidency for the second straight election.

The big question is if Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will respect this decision, or if he will take it to the streets. If he does, then we're going to get an influx of refugees - and that is going to make things difficult.

Of course Obrador will take to the streets. He has nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by doing so.

It depends on Obrador's character. If he values Mexico as a nation more than he values his own political fortune, he'll back off. If it's all about Obrador, then he'll push it as far as he can.

Obrador going "Sore Loserman" creates a big opening for PRI to move in and give itself new life as the "adult opposition" to PAN.
