What better way to start commemoration and list month (December) than noting the magazine Foreign Policy top 100 thinkers. Only two Latino Americans made it, and a well deserved choice: Yoani Sanchez and our very own Teodoro Petkoff. Two anti Castro and anti Chavez thinkers. And in the list try to find one who seriously would consider defend Chavez or Castro.
ERRATA: although I scanned the list twice I missed Dilma Roussef in it. So I suppose that I was wrong in assuming that no one in that list would defend Castro or Chavez. Not that she will necessarily be willing to do so since she is less keen on be seen with Chavez than Lula was, but she will defend Brazil big business in Venezuela and if it means hugging Chavez publicly once a year as she did yesterday, so be it. Yet, considering her rather significant reversal on Lula support to Iran, I have still hope that she will dump Chavez when necessary.
