Three most sensible statements from Marcelo Ebrard in Madrid

From Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico City chief of government, during his visit to commemorate the Spanish exiles who fled to Mexico during and after the Spanish Civil War, when Lázaro Cárdenas opened the doors for them:

1. On AMLO:
"I have a good relationship with him, with different accents and different tactics and strategies. But the deal is that the Left must only have one candidate, because anything else would be madness."
2. On how to choose the Left's candidate:
"We will determine the candidate with a simple method, which is that in the second half of 2011, through polls, decide who has the ability to better represent the Left in order to what the majority of the electorate thinks. If we do an internal consultation, between party members who would vote this day, we will be making a strategic mistake."
3. And finally, on the Spanish exiliados:
"The exiles didn't arrive in Mexico in order to demand; they arrived in order to give and share what they had: labor, knowledge, talent, creativity, teaching, and solidarity."

Amen to all three.
