Mexico Tackles Reforms

The congressional brawls that preceded Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s inauguration did not bode well for his relationship with lawmakers or their constituents. Six months into his term, he seems to have won the respect of both. According to Mexico’s Reforma newspaper, Calderon’s approval rating in June was a strong 65 percent, up from 58 percent in March. Not bad for a man who squeaked into office by less than 1 percent of the vote over leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in a disputed poll that left the country deeply divided.
