The natural 

Last night Hugo Chavez appeared on U.S. television in a interview with Barbara Walters. I missed it due the crappy private cable TV company having my cable box go out so I had no TV at all. Maybe Bush should be using all the billions he is throwing around to nationalize Time-Warner rather than invade countries half way around the world. But that is a topic for another post.

Through the miracles of YouTube though we can all see the the interview:

All told it was pretty good. It showed a few young rich yuppies who oppose Chavez but won't leave right now - presumably their parents are making too much money right now.

Chavez did an excellent job of distinguishing between his disdain for the U.S. government and his feelings regarding the country as a whole. He also got Ms. Walters to actually go to a Caracas Barrio - a place the rich yuppies have probably never gone in all their lives.

Lastly, in his rudimentary english he tells U.S. that Martin Luther Kings dream is the dream of Americans and his dream also. Spoken like the brilliant politician that he is.
