Don't cry for me

Venezuela’s cancer-stricken President, while addressing a group of young chavistas today, suggests time is not on his side:

“You will finish the job. It’s up to you to finish it. We have started it. But time will not be enough. And what do I care? That is how processes are, that is how time is. I, for as long as I live, am already certain that I will not see Venezuela like I dream it could be, but what do I care? My children will see it. My granddaughters, my grandsons, all you boys and girls, you will see it.”
