The Americas are not really my fuerte — I'm more of a Middle East enthusiast when it comes to politics and current events. But if there's any Hugo Chavez news — I'm on it. He's a colorful character whose rhetoric alone is worth watching. If Chavez is one of my favorite leftists, then Jon Lee Anderson is one of my favorite journos (part of the Langewiesche, Hitchens trifecta). The combination made magic in this week's New Yorker — Anderson joins us today to talk to us about his extraordinary access to Chavez for his article, "Fidel's Heir: Hugo Chavez's Big Ambitions."
