Re: Mexico's Election. It Isn't Over Yet. by tucsonmike on 6 September 2006 2:53am
 
Well we are waiting to see what happens Thursday with the Mexican Supreme Court. President Fox went to give his last address to Congress. Obrador supporters forced him to leave. He angrily handed his address over to someone and read a copy on television that night.

This is not looking good folks. The last time Mexico had dual governments was when Juarez was fighting Maximillian. We in the U.S. are worried about Civil War in Iraq?

The Mexican Supreme Court upheld Calderons victory. Some of Obrador's supporters are starting to melt away. BBC had a good story on it. There are even deeper class divisions because of it.

The Socialist Prime Minister of Spain congratulated Felipe Calderon and told Obrador to give in. Obrador is still threatening an alternative government in a city of his choosing. Some feel if his candidate loses the Governors race in his home state of Michoacan, he may give in. The next hurdle is next Saturday. September 16th is Mexican Independence Day. The military is still planning its traditional parade through the Zocalo where the demonstrators are camped.

I've bounced this off others in Tucson. Ellerd to add an answer to your questions, we fear if the worse happens, we will have millions clamoring to get to our borders. The signs are it will fizzle, but you never know.

Here's hoping it's all macho bluster from Obrador. Spain still has a kind of patrimonial relationship with Mexico, so it's probably for real.
