DAVID WALTERS suggested:
Walter, don't forget to add Peru and Mexico to the list of countries 
without left-veering gov'ts. Actually the Left did win in Mexico, but 
the election was stolen.

Thanks for the thought. The Peruvian regime is conservative and the
Mexican regime is not leftist, but the Mexican government has lately
buried the hatchet with Cuba, and now cooperates with Cuba on such
issues as immigration, and you'd have been quite surprised to see 
the nice photos of Calderon and Raul on the front pages of Mexico's
daily news papers at the time of the summit. They dominated those
front pages completely.

David is right as to the general characterization, of course.
