A huge amount hangs in the balance as Venezuelans head to the polls.
Should Chavez win, his plans to consolidate power and foster further revolutions in the region will recieve a huge boost.
According to Reuters
Chavez, a close ally of Cuban President Fidel Castro, has vowed to use re-election to scrap presidential term limits and create a single-party that he expects to lead in power for decades.
Castro is dying, but unfortunately for the free world, Latin American socialism, lives on.
Time to pray for a miracle.
