I think that morality is a little more flexible in Latin America than in the United States, and politicians are very easily forgiven when the next guy comes and leaves the country worse off than the guy before him. I think most politicians can expect forgiveness in a few years out of office. If I were a Latin American political writer, I would write a book on political forgiveness in Latin America. I would entitle it: Forgive and Forget? Latin America’s History of Political Amnesia.
