Curveball from Elba
The SNTE boss said in an interview with El País that Marcelo Ebrard is the candidate that she likes best. That certainly contradicts with the widespread perception that she is backing Enrique Peña Nieto. Given that she is self-aware enough to recognize that such a declaration could be harmful to Ebrard's chances, I'm guessing that not mentioning Peña Nieto was a ploy rather than an honest expression of preference.
