Creel's Out! And In!
Santiago Creel has left his seat in the Senate so as to chase his presidential aspirations full-time. He encouraged his fellow panistas to do the same. Ironically, he's probably among the PAN candidates for whom a separation from his job in order to campaign is least necessary, what with him being a Senate backbencher who could probably be replaced with a stuffed animal with no one the wiser. Unless I'm mistaken, everyone else either runs a cabinet agency (Cordero, Lujambio, Lozano, Félix), a state government (González), or is in the congressional leadership (Vázquez Mota).
