Chavez Hasta Siempre
Chavez wins his referendum, if he doesn't mind saying so himself. Reuters reports:
CARACAS (Reuters) - Three cabinet ministers on Sunday said Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez won a referendum on whether he can run indefinitely for reelection.
The ministers, who asked not to be named, cited preliminary polling and electoral data.
Leftist Chavez is seeking approval in the referendum for a raft of constitutional changes to increase presidential powers, advance his self-styled revolution and consolidate a socialist state for the OPEC nation.
Later reports however, say Chavez has lost.
I think Glenn Reynolds said it best. It's easy to vote the left into power. It's much harder to vote them out of power.
