Venezuela now

Chavismo won. It used all kinds of tricks but in the end, it would have won even without them. The tricks just optimized results. I had been making very cautious comments at Miguel's blog about the elections, but in the end, yesterday for some minutes I thought we may have a chance. I had expressed my doubts about an oppo victory many times, even if cautiously, even if a part of me wanted the miracle.

As I said before: it now depends on how cool we react and how Venezuela's Alpha and Omega, oil prices, evolve.

More on that soon.
