We need to celebrate the victory of the ballot box now, because Hugo has until 2012 to rig an election so dramatically as to get 99.97 percent of votes for an even more slanted “constitution” unless the people can get him forced from office before then.

51%-49% is a relatively slim margin. It could easily have gone the other way. It is important that Venezuelans be able to decide their own fate. Hopefully this is the first step towards removing this buffoon from office

Sadly, if Chavez is serious about following the footsteps of Castro, there will be a bloodbath, or at least, mass inprisonment of the opposition leaders. Chavez seems to be the kind of guy who would take power that isn't given him by the voters
