Ah, if only you were right, Joaquín!

The masses, yes, are looking to Chávez and Fidel. They always have 
done so, even in Peronist Argentina.  Perón himself fostered this 
many times.  At any rate, they are looking to put an end to 
imperialist loot.

But not the "national bourgeoisies", not even a tiny fraction of 
them.  Neither Lula nor Kirchner represent those "n.b."s and, in 
fact, are under attack from that side.  Kirchner is more a 
representative of the petty bourgeoisie, Lula of the rather 
privileged workers in São Paulo.

The bourgeois will always side with the imperialist banker (who he 
hates because of financial constraints) against the unionized worker. 

This is a case study of historically determined political blindness.
