A wild, wild bet

First of all: I have to stress the following is just gut feeling. I have the impression Chávez' honchos will keep talking about how serious Chávez's condition is until late 15 or very early 16 December...and then they will tell Venezuelans how Chávez is having a wonderful recovery, they will communicate what he said to them and they invite people to celebrate their caudillo's recovery by going to vote en masse for the PSUV candidates. Chávez's actual state is inconsequential to this.
