When I lived in Mexico, during the late 1990s, I often found myself arguing with people over the rate of cultural change in that country. It was blinding, even in those days before the internets and all that. And the pace has not slowed.
Evidence of change is not that the woman in the white dress handed out the order in which the presidential candidates were to speak. Evidence of change is that it was extremely controversial and prompted an apology by the organizers.
That said, wags could not help but declare her the winner of the debate. And having watched it, I can understand why. Plus, Enrique Peña Nieto is so far ahead that it does not really matter. As long as he does not throw up on himself, or confess to killing his ex-wife, then he is going to win. (For more on the ex-wife rumors, see here, or for a hella show go to minute 5:30 to see a state legislator cause a giant fuss after making the accusation on the floor of the Mexico state congress.)
