.. Marina who ? ..

.. she is a long – time sustainable – energy green activist , one who happens to be a businesswoman to boot … something of a surprise . She does not neglect her grass – roots activism , by no means . However , she manages to mix in the practicality of business along with it …

.. in Brasil , it is managing to catch the Brasilian nation ‘ s attention …

.. [link] to the news article …

.. she came to the fore when the previous Green party candidate died in a plane crash . So , in stepped Maria . To everyone ‘ s surprise , she managed to convince a conservative businessman to run with her as her vice – presidential candidate . Since the conservative party did not have a readily credible candidate this time around , the tories in Brasil have rallied around Marina . Boy , oh Boy , has she taken off …

.. if opinion polls hold , she may well win the Brasilian presidency this year . She would need to beat incumbent Dinah Rousseff in a runoff , but the polls indicate that she would have a fighting chance …

.. stay tuned ….
