chavez-feb-09Tentative votes are in, but according to Al-Jazeera, Chavez won. Results are predicted in the 53 to 60 percent range. More when further results come in.

Also confirmed by the New York Times. Hugo Chavez, without preconceived bias or off-the-cuff ranting (unlike what you’ll find throughout the rest of the internet), has effectively abolished term-limits in Venezuela, which will take effect after his current term ends in 2013.

This coming just a day before expressing interesting in speaking with US President Barack Obama. Here’s to hoping an effective dialogue gets underway.

Oh, and let’s hope that an effective dialogue can begin within ourselves. I am not fan of this. But we must be willing to step outside ourselves, recognize our egocentricities and hypocrisies, and refrain from loaded words when evaluations.
