Bolivar's second revolution continues.

Bolivia's new president, Evo Morales, is a socialist, former coca leaf farmer, and a friend of Hugo Chavez. He's also genuinely loved by his people, after winning a sweeping party majority in a multi-party presidential election, in a convincing 54% landslide, the biggest since Bolivia's return to democracy in 1982.

Here, a Bolivian miner waits in front of Congress, where Evo Morales will be sworn in as the country's first indigenous president. The new face of democracy in Bolivia. Che approves! Cheney, however, is probably already plotting a coup.
