Costa Rica election

It looks like Laura Chinchilla of the PLN will win the Costa Rican presidential election.  Chrissie Long and Sara Miller Llana have a good article in the Christian Science Monitor about the almost total absence of the left in the election.  I also like it because it makes no mention of Hugo Chávez, as I expect to see media attention on Chile and Costa Rica as some sort of rightward trend even though the political contexts of the countries are very different.

Regardless, it is nice to see the election of female presidents as something rather commonplace in Latin America.
