Enrique Pena Nieto is TV star handsome...and a youthful 45.
But...perhaps not that bright...and certainly not well informed.
The former governor of populous Mexico state has stumbled badly several times on his way to re-taking the presidency back for the PRI...with polls still showing him with a comfortable lead.
Yet...recently he couldn't quote the nation's minimum wage...nor the price of its staple food...tortillas.
Embarrassed...he has responded with what some called...a 'sexist' defense.
His PR blunders have critics sharpening their knives...as Calderon's 6-year term comes to an end.
