Election in Mexico

The presidential election in Mexico is Sunday (note that they vote on a day off, rather than some countries which value democracy less and vote on Tuesdays). Look for even more interesting times ahead if the populist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) defeats Vicente Fox's chosen successor. AMLO intends to repeal parts of NAFTA, which would be a good thing for every non-millionaire in both countries, and would do more to solve the immigration issue than anything currently on the table in the US Congress.
