Central America going "south"

It appears Democracy is ailing south of the U.S. border
Sandinistas Set for Comeback in Nicaragua: "When Nicaraguans go to the polls on Nov. 5 to elect their next president, they may end up choosing an old-time communist – who could win without even getting a majority of the votes.

A victory by Daniel Ortega, whose brutal Sandinista rule in the Central American country ended 16 years ago, is a growing likelihood because of millions being pumped into his campaign by the stridently anti-U.S. Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.

Add to the mix indifference from the U.S. State Department, and Chavez and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro will have a new ally in their growing axis of anti-American states south of the border."
Also, don't forget how close the hard left, the socialists, came in Mexico in winning their most recent election over Vincentes Fox's more 'moderate' party. The domino theory has not been discarded into the waste bin of world history. It seems to be alive and well.
