The PRI's Next President
If Paredes and Peña have their way, it'll be Humberto Moreira. That would seem to be a strong enough pair as to make defeat unlikely. This is a sensible move for everyone involved. I speculated at some point that Moreira could be a potential adversary for Peña in 2012, should the State of Mexico race go against the PRI in 2011. Supporting Moreira seems a cagey way for Moreira to head that possibility off, unlikely though it may seem. And now Moreira, who's quite young, positions himself to be a logical candidate in 2018 (never too early!).
