I was reading through the excellent comments debate that followed Juan’s Capriles post – really, it’s been a long time since so much good stuff came out in our forum – and suddenly it struck me: where’s Leopoldo?
Even among my readers, who should be friendly ideological territory if ever there was one, the guy barely rates a mention. The CaracasChronicles primary, at least, is a head-to-head between MCM and Henrique.
The gap between how strong a candidate we figured LL might be and his performance so far has been staggering. His messaging’s all over the place, his ads self-aggrandizing and memorable for all the wrong reasons, his delivery weirdly flat. The guy just has no buzz and looks to come a distant third.
