Hugo Chavez was not the way for Latin Americans. And so today even after his death, we say that he is not the way for our Latin American continent. Over time he moved further to the left, and that proved to be detriment. And we see it in the way his death was handled. As far as anyone knows, he could have been dead since Decemember 30 of 2012. But the secretism surrounding him in the last 3 months is an example of the lack of transparency in his government. Now, the question is not what's going to happen to Venezuela without Chavez. His followers have proved themselves to be of very low political caliber-- almost like puppets of the Cuban authorities. The real question is, what's going to happen to Cuba without Chavez?
