Bachellet Flirts With Chavez

Chilean presidential candidate Michelle Bachelet is showing political instinct.

She recently criticized Bush for referring Venezuelan President Chavez as a “pebble in the shoe”. Chavez was democratically elected twice, she voiced. The US should let him be.

Bush is an easy target. There is not downside in criticizing him

Defending Chavez, on the other hand, could cost her some right wing votes but also win her some respect at the center and lots of leftish devotion.

She knows how to get to the people. Not in vain she leads the presidential race.

Hopefully this is just campaign bluffing. Hopefully.

At this stage, everything is campaign bluffing.
