Apparently he has named a successor because his cancer has come back and is worse than ever! Hopefully the cancer eats away at him slowly. This man has done more damage to the Latin American world in the new 21st century than any other Latin American leader! He guises his evilness in a faux desire to help the little guy; however, in a country as rich in oil as Venezuela, it should not be the one of the worst off in the entire western hemisphere. However, under Chavez corrupt leadership it has gone from bad to one of the worst. We should all pray this guy is dies and is forgotten to the pages of history! Notice taking the reigns of the worst leader in the Latin American world is pretty bad when you consider the competition: Evo Morales of Bolivia, Laurent Lamothe, Prime Minister of Haiti, Portia Simpson-Miller Prime Minister of Jamaica, Raul Castro of Cuba and Daniel Ortega President of Nicaragua!!!
