Selecting the Leftist Candidate

Ebrard says that it is imperative that the left unite behind one candidate in 2012, and that said candidate should be decided by polls rather than primaries, given the PRD's checkered recent history with internal elections.

Wow. I'm not sure if this was a serious, premeditated statement by Ebrard or just something that just occurred to him in the moment, but what does it say about the PRD that it doesn't trust itself enough to allow big decisions to be made by an open, orderly vote?
