Evo Morales, the candidate of the MAS (Movement To Socialism)
party,  was elected president of Bolivia.  What will this mean for other
struggles in Latin America?  How is the MAS vision of socialism similar
to and different from other perspectives on socialism, including perspectives
in Venezuela?  Will Morales, as the  BBC story at 
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4541306.stm , asks, "side with 
Chavez or be a pragmatist like Lula"?  Given the position of  MAS and 
Morales on coca (see Morales's web site below), how will the US react?

In solidarity, Jerry
