    "Latin Pulse" comes remotely from Mexico this week, with presidential politics taking center stage. Mexico will select a new president this weekend with the PRI's Enrique Pena Nieto leading the polls. And this week, the decision by Paraguay's parliament to impeach and then remove President Fernando Lugo has caused diplomatic waves throughout Latin America. The entire program is focused on these important presidential changes.

    In-Depth Interviews:
    José "Pepé" Carreño of "Excelsior," and
    Eric Hershberg of the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies at American University.

    Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell
    Associate Producer: Lydia Beyoud
