Does anyone really believe that it is over?

Calderon wins Mexican presidential race

Does anyone really believe that it is over? Nope? Me neither!

Calderon, a conservative who preached free-market values and financial stability during the campaign, was already reaching out to other parties to build a "unity government." His opponent, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, blamed fraud for his narrow loss in the vote count and called on his supporters to fill Mexico City's main square Saturday in a show of force.

No, the other candidate is following election law and contesting the election which is his right. Just like here in the US, it happens all the time. In the long run, if violence can be avoided, it will be a great thing for democracy and the democratic process in Mexico.
