Venezuelans lose big

Hugo Chavez's constitutional reform power grab appears to have passed in a referendum today in Venezuela.
President Hugo Chavez won a referendum to eliminate term limits Sunday, according to official results, paving the way for him to run again in 2012 and beyond in what critics fear is an attempt to become Comandante Numero Uno And Absolute Supreme Dictator For Life.
OK, I might have tweaked that quote a little bit.

Tough news for Venezuela, but I guess Obama will be happy to have a kindred spirit to the south.
