It's all in the name: Enrique Peña Nieto presents his own PRI group

Outgoing Mexico State Governor Enrique Peña Nieto held a "working breakfast" with a large group of senators, federal deputies, former governors, and other PRI big shots, and handed them their accreditation as members of the new group entitled Expresión Política Nacional, the name of the PRI group that will bring him the presidential nomination, and, more likely than not, the Mexican presidency in 2012.

Its initials just happen to be his - EPN.

I find this more than a bit instructive: According to Baja Reserva,
Nothing escaped the team of the mexiquense: the audience had to leave their mobile phones outside the salon, so that they could not  receive or make any calls, but also to avoid any photograph, video or audio recording, so as to uploadto Twitter.  Attendees formed a bloc in support of the state governor for 2012. And in the end, a besamanos.
Wow. What the hell went on in there, an Eyes Wide Shut-like induction ceremony?
I am sure the 2012-2018 EPN government will just stand out for its openness and transparency and lack of paranoia. And for its lack of asskissing.
