WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
"It's more interesting to watch soccer than those dummies talking
nonsense and fighting each other."
-- Mexico City human resources officer Claudia Alvarez on
the popularity of the World Cup in Mexico, where the closest
presidential campaign in decades concludes July 2 with election day.
Former Mexico City mayor Andres
Manuel Lopez Obrador holds a six-point lead over two
other candidates in a three-man race. Center-left candidate Lopez
Obrador is a pasionate baseball fan, while conservative rival Felipe Calderon is a
soccer fan. Calderon was criticized for mixing soccer and politcs,
especially after his prediction of the outcome of the Mexico-Angola
game. Calderon predicted 4-1; the game ended 0-0.
