Venezuela's Chávez Wins Decisive Victory

Venezuelans overwhelmingly reelected President Hugo Chávez on Sunday, further extending a presidency that began when he was swept into power eight years ago. The populist leader will receive another six years in office to broaden his leftist revolution and cement his government as the most defiant anti-Bush administration voice in Latin America.

With 78 percent of the votes counted by 10 p.m., electoral authorities announced that Chávez, 52, had secured 61.3 percent of the vote to 38.4 percent for Manuel Rosales, whose candidacy united a fractured opposition but had only four months to gather momentum.

Viva la Revolucion Bolivariana! I hope this time around the 3 million and so people who voted against Chavez are able to focus their energy in making more positive contributions to this great nation. They are an important voice that needs to be heard, but they need to express their differences in accordance to the laws stablished in the constitution. They must accept once and for all that Venezuela Ahora es de Todos!!
