Panistas Laying the Groundwork

Excélsior reports on the names of the panistas setting up support networks in Mexico City ahead of a possible presidential run: Alonso Lujambio, Heriberto Félix, Santiago Creel, Josefina Vázquez, Juan Manuel Oliva, and Emilio González. The one name that is most conspicuous by its absence is Ernesto Cordero, the finance minister that many have assumed was Calderón's favorite, although he has said time and again that he's not going to run.

And one name that is conspicuous in its presence: Emilio González, the Jalisco governor with a taste for drunken rants, and a distaste for homosexuals particularly and social liberalism generally. It would be hard to come up with a less appealing candidate for the PAN.
