Headlined to None 10/9/12

In response, supporters chanted, "Viva Le Patria. "Ooh Aah, Chavez won't go!"

Speaking for others perhaps a Vargas fisherman said, "I'm crying with joy. In the next six years, we will deepen the revolution." 

A construction worker said, "I can't describe the relief and happiness I feel right now."

A teacher said, "Chavez is my joy. He will continue protecting the poor and defenseless."

After his victory was announced, Chavez tweeted:

"Thank you, my God. Thanks to everyone. Thanks my beloved people!!! Viva Venezuela!!! Viva Bolivar!!!"

An email sent this writer showed an image of him displaying a Chicago Daily Tribune headline saying, "CAPRILES DEFEATS CHAVEZ."

It replicated Harry Truman holding up the notorious Chicago Daily Tribune (now the Chicago Tribune) early November 3, 1948 front page headlining "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN."

The broadsheet to this day hasn't erased the memory it would like everyone to forget.

Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez tweeted congratulations, saying:

"Your victory is our victory! And the victory of South America and the Caribbean!"

Bolivian President Evo Morales replicated her tweet, saying:

"Your victory is also ours. It is of South America and the Caribbean. Congratulations President Chavez!"

Cuban President Raul Castro was one of the first leaders to send congratulations. Chavizmo was triumphant. Sunday was celebratory time. Monday it's back to business.
