The question is not whether Ortega is an authoritarian, capitalist 
figure or not. Rather it is the likelihood of someone much worse than 
him becoming the new president. Until the opposition begins to coalesce 
around a clear, democratic, and economically viable program with a 
leader who has some kind of credentials as a Nicaraguan patriot, we are 
likely to end up with someone like the bastards that run Guatemala, 
Honduras and Colombia.
