My impression is that Creel is too good of a person to be a politician, but not a good enough person to make a difference in politics. He lacks the malice or the stomach that makes an Emilio Gamboa or a Manlio Fabio Beltrones professional politicians, full-time jerks. But ultimately, the part-time dignity that Creel shows isn't much better. On occasion, it can even be as or more damaging.Chabat:
The list of explanations for the removal of Creel as the chief of the PAN senators is long. It goes from his bad management of the debates/monologues surrounding the energy reform to his supposed closeness with the PRD, passing by, of course, his desire to be a presidential candidate, his historical conflicts with President Calderón and the conflicts with the television broadcasters, even the exhibition of his personal life in the media...
Now he will have to swim without a life preserver. Like everyone. Like Calderón did in 2005 to win the PAN candidacy. Now we'll see what Santiago Creel is made of.
