From The Post: Obrador Profile
Staff Writer Manuel Roig-Franzia profiles PRD candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Friday's Washington Post. Excerpt: "Obrador, who is often compared with South American leftists, has found a model in an icon from the north: Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
López Obrador's economics team has developed a blueprint for what they call the "Mexican New Deal." Their modern version of Depression-era populism is an ambitious program to create millions of jobs and stem migration by undertaking huge public works projects, including a railroad network, vast housing developments, ports and timber replanting."
