Peña Nieto's kind-of-informe: Direct response to Beltrones

How interesting. A couple of days ago, Senator Manlio Fabio Beltrones argued - and quite wisely so - that it would be a "danger" if the PRI returned to power in Mexico without  a clear project. It sounded like a stab at Peña Nieto - and at least that is how the outgoing governor saw it.

In yesterday´s speech for PRI and other elites, which was not technically his state of the state address (he handed that in writing to the state congress, Calderón-style), Peña Nieto appeared to directly respond to Beltrones when he said, "Let there be no confusion, Mexico does have a clear project,  is contained in its Constitution."

Merely playing to the gallery, or are tensions increasing Beltrones-Peña Nieto?
