Here's some powers columnist for the Daily Beast and syndicated columnist Charles right now.
Okay Charles your thoughts reaction what it.
-- I could be on gracious but I will be he was a thug he tried to dismantle democracy in this country.
And I think his country in the world would be improved upon his passion.
The only problem is the man he appointed successor.
Very recently just when he went in the last treatment in Cuba takes himself very hard -- Communist and very pro Cuba.
There are some Linda Chavez -- parties who are socialists -- -- -- or -- these hard line anti American.
Through what the one country that will suffer immediately -- Cuba because it and other countries in the in in in Latin America.
Had been dependent on Chavez.
For concessions for example tons of oil and very low prices as a way to sustain their economies.
And in the long run they will be cut off -- to have to live on their own.
The problem has been shot -- successor.
Who is likely to win given that might be -- sympathy.
Vote for -- of the party with the death of shoppers.
He's just hard -- -- -- Chavez is the only upside is it's hard to maintain a revolution.
Without the charismatic leader like Chavez himself.
And without him although they may succeed in holding on in this election.
It's unlikely that his movement will now dissolved because in the end it's unsustainable and it is quite a cruel system that he.
Initiated in his country.
Just I talked to a Latin American diplomat today and he said.
Quote this'll be a challenging time inside Venezuela they have big economic challenges in coming days as I mentioned election within thirty days that's what the constitution calls for.
What about the relationship between the US and what the Obama administration may or may not try to do.
Well I don't think it's -- gracious first of all.
To call home use it to you as a totalitarian thugs is somebody who's completely anti democratic he was a human rights abuser.
Nominees was not a friend of the United States so it at a bare minimum at least we have the hope.
Having somebody that we can work -- I'm not saying it looks great.

Look you know 144 largest oil producer in the world and and so at least there's a possibility.
That -- somebody that we might be able to work last Tucker.
Well people who look carefully at what shot his sentence that he believes.
Come away confused me was he had a Marxist not really an orthodox warnings of boulevard worshippers he talked to a liberation theology the -- star for him really was anti Americanism.
That's what it was about -- use that idea to really.
Unite in a baffling and terrifying way Latin America if you think about.
How Latin America which is just south of us has of all -- -- People forget that Daniel Ortega leader of the Sandinista party is still the president of Nicaragua after a hiatus of a number of years.
It seems to me this is it is it ought to be something of a wake up call for the United States while our attention is so often focused you know one South Asia the Middle East.
We have huge and seizing.
Group of people just south of us was organizing principle is -- -- that's not good.
But in the end I think it's unsustainable the only reason he could sustain it is because he's sitting on oil.
He spread the ideology to Bolivia Ecuador.
And sustained -- the Sandinista Nicaragua.
But in the end those a basket cases and would socialism.
The Dana and their system in the socialism -- I can make it.
In the it was Margaret Thatcher who's in the -- socialism doesn't work because.
The socialist run out of other people's money.
And there isn't a lot of it in Bolivia and Ecuador Nicaragua to start with -- so he sustain them the question.
I'm not sure it's a movement but ideologically was important because.
At the end of the eighties when the whole world abandoned communism as an obsolete.
Ridiculous idea it was Chavez who provided in Latin America he's the one who -- -- sort of a stature.
But if you take away -- it could be that it will die in time.
The concern I have is that in the very next election.
-- -- the opposition did rather well against Chavez in the last election last year.
Because of the way that the party controls those bill press and has these shock troops out there who intimidate people.
He'll probably hang on -- power at least for a few years.
