As a meaningless example, just to show how different things are here, for last night's Superbowl, there were almost no commercials. They just filled the time with music and an occasional ad. No hype.
At any rate, Mexico has another presidential candidate, a woman. And her opponent has had problems thus far in the 24/7 social media world of gaffes. It should be interesting. Note she does have the prerequisite flag pin.

Josefina Vazquez Mota won a primary contest Sunday to become the presidential candidate of the ruling National Action Party (PAN) for July 1 elections -- and a chance to become Mexico's first woman president.
Both of the men who battled Vazquez Mota for the nomination conceded to her, and she immediately called on the party to set its sights on Enrique Pena Nieto, the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) which ruled Mexico for 71 years before losing power in 2000. Pena Nieto has a sizable lead in most polls, a huge bank roll and the support of the dominant Televisa network.
