Mexico City Mayor a Presidential Favorite

Lourdes Garcia-Navarro profiles Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the controversial mayor of Mexico City. Obrador is facing criminal charges for an obscure land transaction -- charges that could keep him from running in Mexico's upcoming presidential election -- but millions of Mexicans recently came out in a show of support. Many blame Obrador's political rivals for pushing trumped-up charges to keep him from becoming president.
