Today in Presidential News

Calderón is heading back to Juárez. Presumably hoping to avoid another chilly reception like last week's, his business this time will be of the closed-door variety. Also, he says that he has complete confidence in his secretary of the interior, the ex-panista Fernando Gómez Mont. Of course political protocol requires him to say so, but if he truly has the same confidence after Gómez Mont after he unilaterally made a series of promises in a political negotiation compromising his entire party's electoral decisions without initially informing anyone, then I have decidedly less confidence in Calderón.

Update: I should add that the last sentence takes Calderón's denial of knowing about Gómez Mont's quid pro quo at face value, which virtually no one is doing.
