The other shoe....

From the BBC: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has confirmed that he will try to change the law to allow him to remain in power indefinitely.

Just like Cardoso (Brazil), Fujimori (Peru) and Menem (Argentina) before him, Hugo has decided he's just too important to leave. Something tells me though that he will be around a lot longer than his Latin American constitution changing predecessors.

Oh and one more thing, is anyone besides me surprised that Putin hasn't done this?

Putin needs the title of "President" and the illusion of elections to attend EU summits and G8 meetings. In South America that's just not necessary.
