Counting is still not complete. I would disagree that Cambio Radical is committed to the status quo. Uribe still has an agenda of reforms to enact in a second term, and even the very idea of actual parties in congress that have had to differentiate themselves in an election is a manifestation of 'radical change,' which is nowhere near complete. I suspect there will be an F&V post or two later on all this, too. This morning’s Caracol report shows 13 ‘U’ senators, not 20. Counting is still not complete.
