    President Chavez has been in office for 13 years

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is in "good physical shape" after undergoing planned cancer surgery in Cuba, Venezuela's vice-president says.
    A lesion in Mr Chavez's pelvic region was completely removed, vice-president Elias Jaua said.
    Mr Chavez, 57, had two operations to remove a cancerous tumour from the same area last year.
    His renewed ill-health comes months before he is due to stand for re-election in October.
    The exact nature and extent of Mr Chavez's illness has never been made public, leading to persistent rumours that his health is worse than officially acknowledged.

    One unexpected benefit to Chavez having cancer is that his rhetoric has been severely dialed down. This is the 3rd operation(?) now for cancer. This may bode well for Venezuela as it may provide a political opportunity for a Chavez opponent.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There would be plenty of opportunities anyway where it now for the unfortunate fact that people didnt want to vote for them.
