Mar del Plata Presidential Summit split the continent in two groups, the pro-Americans led by Mexico, and the leftist, led by Venezuela and Argentina.

The leftist front has been more assertive.

Chavez’s and Kirchner’s shows in Mar del Plata were aggressive and, judging from the reactions (a sudden exit by Bush and a diplomatic impasse between Venezuela and
Mexico), are causing effect.

Expect the leftist to keep on the offensive.

Kirchner is paying a visit to Chavez this week. They will likely spend time in the situational room planning the next move.
