Video Blog Guest by Dominic Nanni: A Response to the Mexican Presidential Election

Hello, folks!

I’ve been out of commission the last couple weeks, making it impossible to really sit down and write.  However, in the meantime, I’ve had some great conversations with friends and colleagues across Twitter and the blogosphere, who are very much interested in sharing their own stories and ideas on the Rubio Dispatch.

Today, I’d like to present a friend from Twitter, Dominic Nanni, who I have had ongoing conversations with about Mexican politics and the recent presidential election last month.

As someone who studied Mexican politics quite religiously back in undergraduate and graduate school, this years election was exciting yet scary all at the same time.  For those of you who know about Mexican politics, the thought of the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI) reclaiming the presidency, was and is scary.  Although fraud was a major theme in post-election reporting, I knew, even before the election was held, the PRI would win.  The question is though, how will they rule differently in the next eight years then they did the 71 years prior to their tumble in the elections of 2000.  Will their be any changes or reforms? Will we step back in time to Mexican authoritarianism?  Time will tell.

Until then, check out Dominic’s video blog on the Mexican elections as well as many other excellent pieces and political insight on other issues.
