A New President in Mexico

"MEXICO CITY — Riding a wave of populist anger fueled by rampant corruption and violence, the leftist Andrés Manuel López Obrador was elected president of Mexico on Sunday, in a landslide victory that upended the nation’s political establishment and handed him a sweeping mandate to reshape the country.
Mr. López Obrador’s win puts a leftist leader at the helm of Latin America’s second-largest economy for the first time in decades, a prospect that has filled millions of Mexicans with hope — and the nation’s elites with trepidation." NY Times

Congrats President López Obrador.

Congratulation to AMLO.

I wish him luck. He has a tall order countering racism, corruption and the corrosive, debilitating effect of the drug trade.
