Interesting Choice of Words
Milenio reports that Gustavo Madero called Peña Nieto a danger to democracy in Mexico. Given the lingering upset over the above advertisement, "danger" is an interesting word choice, though I personally don't think much of Peña Nieto's democratic instincts.
Another sign that Madero is following a calderonista playbook: he's stacking the PAN's National Executive Committee with Calderón loyalists, including the president's sister. Within the party, at least, Calderón doesn't yet appear to be the power-hemorrhaging lame duck he's been rumored to be for more than a year.
