The referendum of Hugo Chávez

These are clearly all examples of foreign policy analysis of the issue. What if the people of Venezuela just did want to relinquish so much power to Chavez? What if the referendum was a set up for the possible successor? What if Chavez used it to suggest to the outside world that he will regain power again in the future but wants the Venezuelan people a space to develop its democratic culture.

I see the referendum's results as a positive outgrowth of democratic processes in Latin America. One that shows true strength for their future.
