Sympathy vote, nothing more. If she does win the 2011 elections, it wont be because of her politics/policies.Oct 31st, 2010 - 04:53 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
It will be interesting to see which of her previous policies will now change.
Now that Pinocchio has no strings.
The trouble with women is that they are very difficult to fathom or predict, [remember mrs Thatcher] and they do say there is nothing worse than a woman scorned, Mrs. Kirchner strong political standing will determine perhaps what she will do, is she easily influenced by unscrupulous men, or will she rule fairy as best she can, only time will tell. But our interest is the Falklands, will she either ignore them or fight for them politically, or turn to the military for help. either way the next year will be very interesting ? beauty and the beast perhaps ???Oct 31st, 2010 - 08:35 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Opinion polls know nothing. I went to Plaza de Mayo and to the Pink House and there it was, Néstor's coffin, but that doesn't mean I'll vote for Mrs Cristina de Kirchner. Not everyone in Plaza de Mayo was a Kirchnerist, and a huge amount of people were paid US$ 200 to go to the funeral. So that was not so spontaneous!Nov 01st, 2010 - 05:08 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

With 21.5% of Argentinians without potable water how could they elect another Peronista? The rest of the world is considered poor without high speed internet into their homes and these people don't have WATER!Nov 02nd, 2010 - 12:36 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
Something is truly wrong with Argentinians, is it a mental illness?
Some are considered poor with high speed internet.Nov 05th, 2010 - 02:07 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
