    Great diary, and very timely. In a way, these developments in Latin America are an unintended consequence of Bush's obsession with wacking Iraq. But I am still nervous about the outcome. I guess the best guarantee that these elections will happen at all, and that the leftist front-runners might all survive them and that their ballot-box outcomes will be legitimate is the fact they are all so tightly bunched together within a single year. Even under ordinary circumstances it would be difficult for the U.S. to tamper with all of them, but with the CIA in upheaval and the U.S. military stretched thin across the glove and mostly tied down in the Middle East,  the majority of South Americans may finally soon awake to a new morning.
