Today's presidential election is widely viewed in Honduras as a way out of Latin America's worst political crisis in decades.
Honduran businesses have taken a beating since President Manuel Zelaya was ousted in June. One official estimates that GDP will fall 4 percent this year.
With international mediation efforts having failed thus far to broker a resolution to the ousting of President Zelaya, everyone from Honduran businessmen to church leaders to other politicians are offering proposals.
Interim Honduran President Micheletti is downplaying Zelaya's return, though the Brazilian Embassy's utilities were cut off and police beatings have increased.
Before the president was deposed, Elvin Santos seemed likely to win November's election. Now protesters pelt him with insults and eggs.
