George Bush vs Al Gore Presidential Election Lawsuit

Remember when the Supreme Court had to decide effectively who was the President of the United States back in 2000? It was said that the United States was the laughingstock of the world by not being able to decide who was President of the most powerful nation in the world. Well...

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Ruling party conservative Felipe Calderon was finally declared Mexico's president-elect on Tuesday, ending a two-month legal battle over election fraud claims that has plunged the nation into crisis.

Seven judges at Mexico's top electoral court unanimously ruled that the July 2 vote was not rigged and that pro-business candidate Calderon won by a razor-thin margin of about 234,000 votes out of some 41 million cast.

But left-wing candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador vows not to recognize Calderon, 44, as president and protests by leftists are expected to continue, putting Mexico's stability at risk for months to come

I wonder how many of those lauging at the United States back in 2000 were from Mexico. Gee, why is the rest of the world so silent in this case? Shrugging their shoulders and moving on? No big deal? Perhaps some of them might be saying something else about Mexico? Maybe they aren't even surprised. What does that tell you about what the other countries really think about Mexico - even if we already know what they think of the United States.
