    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez won re-election, disappointing the U.S. government, which hasn't yet arrived at a working relationship with him during his 14 years in power.
    It is impossible for the United States to ignore Mr. Chavez and Venezuela, given its position as America's fourth-largest foreign oil supplier and given its leadership role in Latin America. Neither of those elements, however, has been enough to spur reasonable relations with Venezuela under three U.S. presidents.
