Mexican election looming

Mexico is going to have Presidential elections this summer.  They are poised between voting for Vicente Fox’s successor in the National Action party, who would continue the support for trade with the U.S. under NAFTA and more often support the U.S. in cross border issues, and Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the Party of the Democratic Revolution. 

Obrador has received campaign funds from Hugo Chavez, and would represent a leftist front opposing the U.S. on many fronts.  Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Mexico and most likely Peru.

Dick Morris discusses that a bit, as well as how legislation on immigration policy here in the U.S. might influence that election for the better or worse.
