Chávez on Cuba

Henrique Capriles is running an ad showing a Chávez video clip from 1998 where he says Cuba is a dictatorship (though he then quickly says he can't condemn/judge it).

I don't know whether Venezuelans will care much about this or not--my hunch is that the vast majority have already made up their minds about Cuba and will not vote based on it--but it is an old story.  Once you make allies, then they're suddenly no longer dictatorships. I wrote last month about a similar parallel between Venezuela and the United States with regard to how states treat their allies.
