- Program Description
Jorge Castañeda has his sights set on the Mexican presidency. Educated in the United States and Europe—he has a Ph.D. from the Sorbonne—Castañeda says a 2006 victory is within reach.
Although he's considered a long-shot by many observers, the former Foreign Minister and leading Latin American intellectual is unperturbed, convinced that his independent candidacy will resonate with Mexicans desperate for political change.
