Press reports highlight 18% inflation. It's perhaps the region's highest. It's falling. It dropped from 28.2 in 2010. Responsible policies will drop it further.

If new elections are called because Chavez is too ill to serve, Chavismo support "indicates that his successor will likely win."

It shouldn't surprise. All regional centrist and left of center governments were reelected. They fall well short of Bolivarian change. 

They shifted away from what James Petras calls "the golden age of pillage." Living standards improved enough to matter. They've got a long way to go. 

Times editors and neoliberal hardliners deplore progressive social change. The fullness of time will decide whether Bolivarianism is sustained longterm. 

It'll determine if it takes hold regionally. It'll have final say. Hopefully populism will emerge triumphant. Majorities want it no other way.
