On the AMLO-Ebrard Showdown

Here's Leo Zuckermann:
López Obrador wants to compete and has already started to minimize the pact of the polls. It's logical: he expected the alliances agreed to by Ebrard and Ortega to lose, whereupon he could again place himself as the undisputed leader of the PRD and the left. It didn't happen and that's why, now, he is unveiling himself as the only one that can advocate for the poor in this country. It is, I believe, the first open, clear consequence of the electoral results from last Sunday: the public confrontation between AMLO and Ebrard has begun.
