The shadow of re-election
Just like it happened a year ago in the US, the shadow of re-election looms again, this time in my home country. As news services around the world report the sad news that Uribe could run a second term, the possibility of further violence and death due to an enraged guerrilla and an encouraged right wing extremist, not to mention friend of Bush, looms too.
This is just another battle won for Uribe, a difficult one to win, in fact, but won, nonetheless. The legislation must still set some conditions and elections will have to be held. In my opinion, however unfortunate it seems, the reality of another term for him is impending.
