Chile like most countries nowadays view their political elite of whatever stripe with contempt and the recent scandals on both sides will make the next election very interesting.

My all time favouritism politcal moment from the last presidential debate on the left, was the super left wing commie candidate from Puerto montt (can't recall her name now) asking Bachelet and the other "socialist" candidates what color the card was that the public hospitals hand out to those registering. Any mother on the lower end of the economic spectrum in Chile, knows exactly what color those cards are. None of the canidates could answer that questions. It was such an brilliant "the empress wares no clothes" moment I almost voted for her. It was particularly embarrassing for bachelet considering she was a doctor and had worked in the health ministry.

A few weeks ago, I was listening to Radio ADN and some political bozo/hack said something like (I´m paraphrasing) - wouldn´t it be nice if we emulated the U.S. method of political stewardship. Well, your almost there with this case and PENTA, all the sharks are circling due to the blood in the water. All you need to do now is define that Corporations are people too and you will have accomplished the goal.

Circus is an exaggerated term.

Tell us what other country is functioning better-- from a democratic, civic, and economic perspective in L/America.

And please do not offer Costa Rica as an example. I agree that Chile needs a serious tune-up in several areas, but it aint a banana republic. Presidents come and go and not in coffins or stretchers.
