“Gotcha” Questions in Mexico?

Mexican presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto hit a book fair this weekend in what should have been an easy public relations stop. Too bad he got stumped when somebody asked him to name three books that influenced him. Over several minutes, he didn’t manage to name a single book, outside of “some passages” of the Bible.

Certainly, this won’t derail his campaign, but it’s not exactly a good way to instill confidence in the PRI, particularly after previous news from the PRI over the weekend.
