A belated squeal out to former guerrilla-turned-technocrat Dilma Rousseff, president-elect of Brazil, whose 10% victory margin at the polls is all the more stunning for her utter lack of even charisma. The administration of this latest South American Matriarch, who is allegedly further to the Left than Four Finger's Lu on key policy issues, may reveal if there is any real egalitarian bite to the populist bark of the Brazilian Novo contro. W'ell be keeping a close watch.
