    I really thought it was two blokes in the picture until I opened it and had a real good look.

    Token female I think.

    Can't make up their mind WHO will be president! That will encourage the voters to side with the failed former presidential candidate I would imagine, NOT.

    Not 'token' at all.
    She carries a big constituency but knows that the only hope against the spectrum-coalition is an alliance headed up by the best bet.
    Did not expect that the competition would come from 'our man in Pernambuco' - expected the 'Minas-effect'.

    No ChrisR, she is not a mere “ioken.”

    Marina Silva has served well in high office, and ran before against our current President. As GeoffWard2 points out, she has a good following.

    Calma Rapaz: This is just getting started.
