"A popular Venezuelan opposition leader is able to run for president but will not be allowed to take power if elected, thanks to a decision made by the country’s Supreme Court. The move disregards an international court ruling and could help President Hugo Chavez split an already fragmented opposition before next year’s vote." [editor's note: One might wonder if Obama is watching this play out, if not for the fact that his re-coronation is almost a slam-dunk already! - SAT] (10/19/11)
