Evo Morales triumphs in Bolivia elections!

if the goal of US foreign policy (if there is a foreign policy) vis a vis Latin America is to encourage the ascension of leftist anti-american anti-globalization governments then by all accounts US foreign policy must be judged a sucess...

to Uruguay (moderate left), Brazil (moderate left), Argentina (left), Venezuela (strongly left), Chile (moderate left/centrist) we now must add Bolivia (strongly left)....

this represents a large shift that seems to be ongoing and upcoming elections in Mexico will be very important.. will former Mexico City leftist mayor unseat Presidente Fox's party? Will Lula retain control in Brazil?
