Rosales registers

Today Manuel Rosales went to register his name for the December presidential election. I was rather busy with personal stuff today and could not follow much except for a few minutes at lunch time on TV. Crowds seemed to me larger than I would have expected this soon in the campaign, which is good. Chavismo stayed put, no Lina Ron hordes blocking access tot he CNE as they did in the past.

On TV supporters of Rosales who until a few days ago were preparing for a primary (that seems missed by none) fell over each other in pledges of unity and support for the Rosales candidacy. Thus, without even officially running Rosales managed the unity of what matters in the opposition and their pledges to support him sounded, believe it or not, as sincere as we could expect from politicians.

We shall see. But let's savor that the Rosales launch looked much better than the Chavez launch a few dasy ago, rose petals included. Read it all at Miguel's who attended.

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
