Ask Jimmy Carter, he's the International Supervisor of Elections. Quit kidding yourself - Venezuela has more poor people than rich people, and they vote for Chavez. He's a lock in that country as long as he appeals to that constituency. He is by all accounts, doing them some good, and he is probably doing harm elsewhere. But he is better than what they had.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
