Evo 1, Jesus 0

While the final results are not in, it appears that, despite divine disapproval, Evo's new constitution will be going into effect as a clear majority (somewhere in the upper 50%s) approved it yesterday. Some good analysis here and also here. Evo will now be cleared to run for a second 5 year term as president in December and I don't think we've heard the last of the eastern provinces' autonomy movement.

Whatever one may think of Evo, I am happy to see indigenous Bolivians getting a voice in their government. Here is a cool slideshow about the voting.
