Cristina Fernandez surprises Argentina by running for vice president, not top job
Adam Jourdan, Eliana Raszewski

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said Saturday she will run as vice president in elections later this year, a surprise move by the firebrand former leader who had been widely expected to be the main challenger to President Mauricio Macri.

Former cabinet chief Alberto Fernandez, a longtime operative, will take top spot on the ticket as the presidential candidate. Cristina Fernandez, a divisive figure in South America’s No. 2 economy, announced the move in a video posted on social media.

The announcement shakes up an election race many thought would be a choice between Macri’s painful market reforms and the fiery populism of Cristina Fernandez, who supported high social subsidies when she ran the country between 2007 and 2015.

The economy of Argentina isn't doing well. Maybe they figured that Cristina wouldn't be good at the top of the ticket.   

Cristina has some real questions about her as well.

Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.
