Just to have the complete picture.  Lula is now saying that what he said about
being old and becoming a part of the political center was a joke.  "Brazilians are
losing their sense of humor" said the President visibly upset and irritated with the
avalanche of criticism his previous comments produced.

In answering a question as to why he maintained now an alliance with Delfim
Neto, former Economy Minister of the military dictatorship and now one of his
main "advisers", Lula made the comment of being "too old to be a leftist."

Some of the critics inside his own PT (Workers Party) have said "Lula does not
believe in anything, except being in power."  Other leftist were even more caustic
in their response to the President's comments.
