The Left: A Clarification

     Larry Pippin disentangles Argentine party politics: De la Rua is not from the Frepaso party, but the old Radical Civic Union, which joined Frepaso, headed by Chacho Alvarez, and made up largely of ex-Peronists, to oust the Peronists after a decade.

     My comment: David Crow simplified things, which are too confusing for the non-specialist. Larry also wants a comment on the Venezuelan situation. That will rate a special posting.
