    It's utterly pathetic that you grieve for him.
    That wasn't his point at all. Expressing hope that someone will suffer is not the same as grieving. Ask not for whom the bell tolls, etc.

    Term limits mean nothing? Even wiki gets it. When term limits are found in presidential and semi-presidential systems they act as a method to curb the potential for monopoly, where a leader effectively becomes "president for life".

    ANd you completely ignored this:Adán Chávez: La salida electoral no es la única vía : Noticiero Digital "The revolution was born in time and did bicentennial through elections and we want to go out there, allowing a peaceful building Bolivarian socialism, but aware of the dangers that beset us and the enemy does not rest, we can not forget how authentic revolutionaries, other methods of struggle.

    from 1953 until his death in 2010, robert byrd was a congressional representative (three terms) and senator, the balance
    so there is no opposition to a person being a re-elected representative for life ... unless it is chavez?

    Re: Chavez's cancer has 'entered the end stage'

    It appears Chavez has already prepared for the worst. However, there will be a battle for leadership should he die.

    If Chávez were to die or become incapacitated, "a fragmentation of the movement" would likely occur. In the immediate aftermath of such an incident, Vice President Elías Jaua would take power, according to the constitution. Perhaps as an indication that Chávez is preparing for the worst, he formed a nine-member State Council earlier this month, headed by Jaua, to assist him with executive duties. The nine "would be able to draw upon a broader leadership base and carry more authority" in Chávez's absence, Wilpert said.

    But with elections on the horizon, the Socialists' hold on power would be threatened without Chávez heading the party.

    The following is a list of possible successors through the electoral process.

    Henrique Capriles of the center-right Justice First party, but Capriles has been building momentum and could perform well against a candidate less established than Chávez.
    Jaua, as Chávez's immediate successor, is one of the top candidates, though he is viewed as more of an administrator than a leader. Chávez appointed Jaua, 43, vice president in 2010; he served as Minister of Agriculture before then. Having been a university professor, Jaua's background is academic, and while he is viewed as an intellectual, he lacks the charisma and oratory skills to be a statesman on par with Chávez.
    Diosdado Cabello, the current Speaker of the National Assembly...who has focused on democratization in Venezuela.
    Foreign Affairs Minister Nicolás Maduro, 50, who started off as a bus driver and became a labor union leader...Maduro's politics align very closely with Chávez's.
    José Vicente Rangel, 82, a former vice president (2002 to 2005)...Ideologically, he is similar to Chávez.
    Lastly, there is Chávez's elder brother, Adán Chávez, 59. Currently the governor of the Venezuelan state of Barinas, Adán, a former physics professor, has a long history of political activity, with views often considered even more radical than his brother's.

    Those fumes of sulfur he inhaled when got on the podium a day after El Diablo at the UN must have infected him with the cancer.

    Whats with the strawman BS? I personally think that there should be term limits for all offices.

    Oh now Chavez has nothing to do with his brother? Perhaps you are able to disconnect Adans statements with Hugo but the rest of the world is not so blind.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/29/wo...pagewanted=all VENEZ-articleLarge.jpg He serves a role similar to that of Raúl Castro, who took over as Cuba’s president after illness removed Fidel Castro from the political scene in 2006. And like Raúl Castro, while Adán Chávez may lack his brother’s charisma, he remains a loyalist who has assisted his brother throughout the consolidation of power.

    A former Venezuelan ambassador to Cuba and long a member of Hugo Chávez’s inner circle of advisers, Adán Chávez has taken on the role of providing public updates on his brother’s convalescence, shuttling between Caracas and Havana in recent weeks. It was his disclosure last Wednesday that the president would not return to Venezuela for another 10 to 12 days that offered the most serious assessment yet of the president’s slow recovery.

    Adán Chávez, 58, now governor of Barinas, a state of cattle ranches in western Venezuela that is a bastion of the Chávez family, has also led efforts to reassure and energize the president’s supporters as rumors swirl about his condition. Citing Che Guevara at a prayer meeting in Barinas over the weekend, he rallied the president’s followers and called on them to remember the armed struggle as a method of “applying and developing the revolutionary program.”

    “It would be unforgivable to limit ourselves to only electoral or other methods of struggle,” said Adán Chávez, a former university professor involved in political activity long before his brother, who is less than two years his junior, formed a nationalist cell of young army officers in the late 1970s.
