another close election

A close election in Mexico. Makes de jure President Gore's 2000 victory look like a landslide. EJ Dionne points out the election that would ensue if a country like Mexico weighted its vote in a way to heavily favor rural, conservative constituencies at the expense of more urban areas in a way that the winner of the popular vote could actually LOSE the election. Gosh it's hard to imagine any country stupid enough to do it that way, is it?
