The short-run future of post-Hugo Chávez Venezuela is uncertain. With the chavista presidential candidate Nicolas Maduro claiming a razor-thin victory over his democratic opponent, the election result could produce a governability crisis in a country already wracked by political polarization, economic collapse, food shortages, power outages, and criminal violence. The international community — particularly in Washington — avoided confrontations with Chávez. However, failing to stand with democratic elements today could result in a missed opportunity to give the Venezuelan people a chance to recover their country and their future.
