85. whoah there now...
the Mex Supreme Court only did a 1% recount of the precincts that went primarily to Calderon. Whereas Obrador had many pieces of evidence to suggest Election fraud in SPECIFIC precincts and areas... none of which were investigated. This evidence was ignored and the Court refused to go any further in the recount. (of which by the way Obrador gained 10 to 14% of that 1% recount tally, despite those precincts being chosen because of the fact that they were districts that were expected to lean towards Calderon)

According to Obradors camp and other Mexican critics of Calderon, Obrador would have won the election by at least 8% if the votes were counted accurately. You call that "low-level" fraud?

This election cycle had absolutely NOTHING to do with the "rule of law", if you had been paying attention since it started you would know that. And as far as judicial process is concerned do you really think the Mexican judges are playing fair? That they don't have interests that would warrant keeping the Status Quo in place? Maybe you really are a pragmatist, but for your sake i hope you're not as gullible as you sound, because that's a rough combination.

Sorry, not trying to offend, just angry over the situation and some of the comments on this thread.
