Mexico’s Next President Won’t Slow The Drug War

At this point, there’s little doubt who is likely to win Mexico’s presidential election on Sunday. That would be Enrique Pe?a Nieto, who polls show leading with double-digits over his rival candidates. He’s also calling for a (subtle) shift in the fight against the cartels: don’t bother as much with stopping drugs and taking down drug lords, but focus on stopping violence and kidnapping. But as far as big changes go, don’t expect much if Pe?a Nieto wins, at least not soon.
