From a Bloomberg article. She really didn't have to work very hard to win.
"Fernandez gave few details during the campaign about how she will manage the country's economy, never holding a news conference or issuing a platform."
I'd also appreciate it if someone could explain "Argentine politics and how the peronist party works".
Reading the Wikipedia entry on peronism is confusing and frankly, disturbing, what with the comparisons to fascist ideology.
It's a good piece and written clearly. "Peronism" means different things at different times -- there seems to be no core ideology, except perhaps for the insistence on a strong authoritarian state -- which derives its legitimacy by pandering to the public whim of the moment, i.e., it is populist, expedient, and opportunistic.
