its over

AMLO's sore loser protests are passing from the stage of history with a whimper. These two factors indicate the effective end of his protests.

== He will take down the barricades for a weekend army parade
(prediction: they will not go back up)

== More of his PRD party members (e.g, governors of Chiapas and Michoacan, congressional deputies) are accepting the Calderon victory.

My prediction is that responsible members of the PRD will take control of the party and prevent AMLO from discrediting the party any further. The PRD will remain Mexico's number two party in the foreseeable future (if AMLO is not at the top). Given the right candidate and the right turn of events, the PRD could become the largest force in congress, and capture the presidency in six years.
