Argentine presidential candidate Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner (R) reacts next to her mother Ofelia and her sister Giselle after the final rally campaing in Buenos Aires, October 25, 2007. The political beliefs of Argentine presidential front-runner Cristina Fernandez were forged in the country's turbulent 1970s when she was a leftist activist and law student. Fernandez, 54, has retained the combative style of her '70s activism during an 18-year legislative career, saying she remains faithful to the ideals of social justice and human rights she developed then. She is expected to handily win Sunday's election and succeed her husband, popular President Nestor Kirchner, who has managed a major economic recovery. REUTERS/Cristina.com (ARGENTINA)
