Hugo Loses

Venezuelan Dictator-in-waiting Hugo Chavez's proposals to become president for life and take Venezuela down the path of socialism were defeated by a narrow majority:
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - President Hugo Chavez suffered a stinging defeat Monday in a vote on constitutional changes that would have let him run for re-election indefinitely and solidify his bid to transform this major U.S. oil provider into a socialist state.

Voters defeated the sweeping measures by a vote of 51 percent to 49 percent, said Tibisay Lucena, chief of the National Electoral Council, with voter turnout just 56 percent.
The question is, though, if Chavez, the darling of many moonbat Hollywood celebs, will abide by the results of the vote.
