A genuine left-wing President.

Gotta say this fella has an awful lot of good things going on.   The only thing I might add here is a thought about his criminal past.  Compare him with the recently departed Mandela, who was an avowed militant in his early days.  People can and do change.

I make no claims that anyone could achieve as much change (or as quickly) in the USA as Mujica has done in Uruguay, but I’d certainly like to give it a go.
