Chavez Loses Face in Elections

It's encouraging that Venezuelans are increasingly voicing their discontent in opposition parties without fear of retribution. Still, to my knowledge neither major party in the US has threatened to send tanks to a state where the opposition party was strong. Not surprising from perhaps the only leader of a non-direct-Chinese satellite state who supported the crackdown in Tibet.

It still bears mentioning that there are now Russian nuclear ships in the Caribbean at his invitation.
