Regarding : Pedro's throwing a party for himself...
If you think this is bad wait till the party he throws for himself when he gets re-elected. I don't think it will take a candidate a completely uphill battle to beat him but It will take someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and get in there with boxing gloves on. It dose not seem as if there is anyone who can give him a run for his money though. I hope there is, Please tell me there is! This guys represent almost everything that is negative in politicians today. I don't think he knows the definition of honesty nor democracy (most in our overall government do not know the definitions of these two words).
