More of the same from Enrique Peña Nieto - and this time, "family values"

Long on rhetoric, short on details, the PRI candidate says Mexico will return to its "grandeur" under his leadership - and now he's Family Guy, too

At his political oath-taking ceremony in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato today, Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) nominee Enrique Peña Nieto delivered up all of his standard campaign fare to the adoring crowd. The PRD and PAN candidates took their party oaths yesterday. Actually, all of the candidates repeat their formal oaths time and again as they pass from town to town, so the media events become rather mind-dulling after awhile. But Peña Nieto has been doing it a lot longer than his two opponents.

Today Peña Nieto added a new bullet point to his speech outline: the importance of the family. A curious selection by the PRI candidate, given his personal history (as much of it as he has revealed). Perhaps the nominee meant family values, Newt Gingrich sytle.
