    It's a worthy goal and I hope he achieves it. I don't care which side of politics a leader is from, as long as he improves the lives of people and a country.

    Morales is a bit of a dick but saying that he is right. His country is stable (with problems) and he has had very good growth. The trick is to translate that into growth now that the resources super cycle is gone.

    As the only indigenous head of state in South America, it would be nice if he spoke out about the plight of his brethren in Argentina.

    He won't.

    Latin Anerica's false sense of brotherhood is both puerile and damaging. They'll ignore anything if they believe it serves that stupid ideal.

    If you have spent any time in Bolivia you will find that are large portion are entirely without any education. Trying to reduce poverty with an illiterate populace will be a tough goal.
    And now gas prices are down, good luck.
