PostGlobal: What Would Obrador Win Hold?

Our friends at PostGlobal weigh the outcome of a potential Obrador win in the Mexican presidential election, which offers " a clear choice between populism and markets. Lopez Obrador, the former mayor of Mexico City, has promised subsidies to the poor and Felipe Calderon, who champions free trade, has support from business."

David Ignatius asks the panel: How would the victory of Obrador affect Latin America? And how would the U.S. interact with a populist government running its second largest trade partner and second largest source of crude oil?

What do you think?
