El Presidente!

Today was the big day! After 12 months of campaigning, voting, counting, recounting, calling for more vote recounts, recounting some more votes, court cases, protests, phony inaugurations, more protests, fights in the congress between rival parties….there is finally, officially and undeniably a new president of Mexico! This morning, amidst more protests in the congress chamber, and a few fisticuffs, and after an unusual procedure at midnight, where the outgoing President Fox handed over his sash (symbol of the presidency, I guess), Calderon was sworn in.
