This is it. The biggest election since November, 2004. You can follow the returns here (if you have a better website, say so). Post your thoughts in the comments.Update: Here is a better link. With 20% of the vote in, PAN candidate Calderon (right-wing, Clintonista) leads PRD candidate Obrador (left-wing, possibly pseudo populist) 38.91--35.50. The early results heavily favored PAN, and more recent returns have been pro PRD, so the lead might be temporary. Exit polls indicate too close to call. Ten thousand diebold commenters claim fraud instantly.
Update 2: Here is another link. The slow trend toward Lopex Obrador continues. Will it be enough?
