Recent AMLO stump speech

La Jornada has coverage of a recent Lopez Obrador campaign speech. In addition to claiming that the PAN candidate has more TV ads than popular cupcakes, he has said that if elected, 50% of his cabinet ministers will be women. But will he pick a woman for the important posts of Gobernacion (State) or Hacienda (Treasury)?

Maybe AMLO's commitment to women in his cabinet explains the recent declaration by Gordillo that she'd like to be AMLO's "friend."

He actually proposed the Dean of UNAM, Juan Ramon de la Fuente as Ministry of Interior(Gobernacion) during a TV interview last Monday. AMLO had critizised him for been a "peon" in Zedillo's government (when he was Ministry of Health).
Not a woman indeed, and not even a perredista.
