From The Post: Election See-Saw

The Post follows the drama in Mexico over the presidential election as Andrés Manuel López Obrador leads then falls behind his opponent Felipe Calderón. Mexican television networks tracked the vote count through the night as Mexicans await results from the Federal Election Institute. But that is not likely to be the end. Obrador is expected to challenge a Calderón victory, taking the count to a special elections court for the final word. The Post's Manuel Roig-Franzia reports from Mexico City on election developments.

At 12:11EDT, El Universal posted the following:
Calderon: 35.85, AMLO, 35.34, .51 difference with 99.73% of all polls counted. This represents 200,000+ vote advantage for Calderon, a lot bigger than the 535 margin of Bush v Gore.

I hear that Fat Lady tuning up now!

I notice your ignorance of the electoral mechanisms in the two countries, US and Mexico. There is no legitimate way to compare the Florida vote, in a system with an electoral college, to the nation-wide, popular vote only-system that is used in Mexico; besides, the Fat Lady and you should wait until the courts decide on the winner.

Stupid AMLO is now demanding a recount. Why should we recount the votes? Just because is a thug who can recognize when he is lost? Get Real! There will not be any recounts, Felipe Calderon will be our next president, get it over.
