From Buenos Aires to Santo Domingo and from the Dominican capital to Argentina.
messages from the inmate of the Frente de Todos travel faster than the 7 hours
to reach the foot of the Caribbean.
In the heart of La Cámpora and at the Instituto Patria they pointed out that the decision of the founder of the PRO that shook the entire political arc should be imitated by the President.
"They have many things in common:
they don't measure and they make noise in their respective spaces
," they explain.
Hardcore Kirchnerists reject the idea that Macri's decision could mean the same for Cristina Kirchner.
"She got rid of a
suffocating political persecution
and in any poll she ranks higher than her competitors," she argues.
They insist that the Argentine head of state should take into account his "
" and run away from the fight for the health of the ruling party.
They even point out that Macri had better internal numbers than those of Fernández, a reading that they reject in albertismo.
Within La Cámpora, as was to be expected, the reading made by the President and his intimate circle of the sayings of Máximo Kirchner
reported by Clarín
had not gone down well .

The spokesmen for the chief of La Cámpora wasted no time.
They remarked that, contrary to what Fernández thinks, the head of La Cámpora did not change his way of thinking and does not want to face the President in a primary, an idea that had emerged from the warnings he gave on March 24 during his walk from the former ESMA to the Plaza de Mayo.
If someone gets angry, we go to the elections and society defines
," said the Vice President's son.
Without further ado, what they want is for Fernández to get off at once.
The lieutenants of the former head of the ruling bloc in the Lower House point out that nothing has changed.
The Cámpora is not opposed to the PASO, but it does intend not to confront the President.
In other words, he demands that Fernández decline his virtual candidacy for re-election as soon as possible, because he considers that it conditions internal positions and damages Peronism as a whole.
They maintain that no one is betting on the re-election of Fernández, as the CGT, some mayors, governors and social movements did some time ago.
Words more, words less, that was what
thought , who in the last year differed from Máximo Kirchner when it came to proposing the political strategy of the common space.
Fernández and his closest collaborators interpreted that message as an alleged twist in the strategy of the Vice President's son, who made it clear that an inmate with a sitting president would be "rare."
Curiously, at the Instituto Patria and in the heart of La Cámpora, they quoted the statements made on Saturday morning by Security Minister Aníbal Fernández, who every week returns courtesies "to the kids" and their leader.
"He himself said that he is the only one asking for Alberto's re-election, there is no one else," they point out.
Strictly speaking, the head of the Security Portfolio said something more poignant;
He questioned whether the former president is the leader with the most votes for the ruling party.
“I am the only one who maintains that Alberto has to be the candidate and you tell me, what happens if Cristina shows up?
I still have my way of thinking and if Alberto competes with Cristina and beats someone, who do you think he's going to beat?
To Chapulín Colorado?", ironized the minister.
The questioning of Kirchnerism to the Minister of Security and the President did not stop there.
"How can they say that the 'finger' is over when they -Alberto- is the product of the modern finger, the send button (send) in a Twitter video", they remember about CFK's move on May 18, 2019 when he announced the candidacy of the President.
They also recalled that it was the President who blocked the possibility of a primary to choose the lists of candidates in 2021. It is a half-truth.
Fernández ended up anointing Victoria Tolosa Paz, in the Province, and Leandro Santoro, in the City.
Losing an inmate was losing the direction of the Government.
They lost the generals.
On the other hand, it is also true that the Kirchners withdrew 91 ballots in the Province that cost dearly in the election.
As true as they also decided not to put the body to the campaign.
In Kirchnerism, Fernández is spitting out his low participation in the elections, which adds several defeats.
In the delegation that accompanies the President there are those who are encouraged to
talk about projects for the next 4 years as a government
The President's men expose exactly the same thing.
Fernández, meanwhile, far from the "political murmur", as he calls it, is preparing to embark on his tour of the United States to meet with Joseph Biden, the most powerful president in the world.
For these hours, his most critical allies are not part of his equation.
At least until Thursday.
The step aside of Macri, in reality, has already altered the official game.
