Mexico: Paticia Mercado “Wins” First Presidential Debate

Eduardo Arcos live-blogged last night's presidential debate in Mexico (ES). Arcos says it was leftist outsider (and blogger), Patricia Mercado who won the debate. Goleech agrees (ES), but says that Felipe Calderón of the conservative PAN party also left in good shape. Boz says that “By not participating in the debate, [leftist frontrunner Lopez Obrador] avoided making any major errors, but he also didn't take the opportunity to swing the election momentum back his way.”
