Foreign Policy has a profile of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (a.k.a. AMLO):

López Obrador’s nostalgia for the good old days when the government dominated Mexico’s economy combined with his affinity for expensive social programs make foreign leaders and investors uneasy. Key elements of the political and business elite abhor López Obrador, the son of small-time merchants, a man who has never worked in the private sector, doesn’t speak English, and has seldom traveled abroad.

For the sake of the Mexican people, I hope and pray that this leftist demagogue does not become the next president of Mexico.
