Hugo Chavez's death could very well result in an uncertain and unstable succession battle that will define Venezuela's future for better or worse. With that country one of the world's largest exporters of crude oil and the fourth-largest supplier of crude oil and petroleum products to the United States, the Obama administration needs to get active in helping to shape events in a positive direction.
More than a decade's worth of Hugo Chavez gutting his country's democratic institutions and centralizing power in his person has led to the present turmoil in Venezuela, where just who is the country's constitutional leader is no longer clear.
President Hugo Chavez is due to be sworn in for a new term in less than a week, and his closest allies still aren't saying what they plan to do if the ailing leader is unable to return from a Cuban hospital to take the oath of office.
National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello said that a motorcycle taxi driver was also killed while removing debris from the road.
"When? It doesn't say. Where? It doesn't say where," Mr. Cabello recently told a crowd of government supporters.
