As long as he's president and looks certain to win reelection, Chavez is vulnerable. No tactics are too dirty to defeat, discredit, denigrate, or oust him. 

His health remains an issue. He had three cancer operations and multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatment. In early July, he told Venezuelans he's "(f)ree, free, totally free" of cancer.

Recovery isn't easy. Reoccurrence can follow remission. Eva Golinger writes often on Venezuelan issues. On May 30, she discussed false reports about Chavez's health.

Since diagnosed with cancer, "all kinds of rumors, lies and speculations" circulated. Anti-Chavez media scoundrels featured it. So do right-wing extremists.

Chavez reported forthrightly about his health, surgeries, treatment and recovery. Evidence shows no metastasis. Many cancer patients recover fully and live long, healthy, productive lives.

Chavez got superb care. He maintains a rigorous schedule. In early July, he began campaigning for reelection. Health issues won't deter him.

"Every day I feel in better physical condition," he said. "I strongly believe that this expression of 'physical limitation' (one reporter used) isn't going to be a factor in this campaign."

He expressed faith for a full recovery. "There are millions of Venezuelans who have reasons to trust me as a person and believe in (Bolivarianism)."

"The revolutionary hurricane begins now. (W)e'll wage a general offensive until 7 October."
