Venezuelan President Chavez wins recall referendum

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who survived a military coup and a two-month strike by oil workers, overcame a referendum to remove him from office two years before his term expires.

Chavez defeated the vote 58 percent to 42 percent, based on 94.5 percent of the ballots counted.

This is a huge victory for progressives worldwide.
