The potential for socialism advances in Bolivia

In not unexpected news, Evo Morales won re-election as Bolivian President by a 63-27 margin (based on exit polls). Not at all guaranteed, and perhaps even better news:
Morales' allies also won a convincing majority in both houses of Congress.
As in Venezuela, we can expect the U.S. (including, mark my words, liberals as well as the "establishment") to start talking about the lack of "democracy" after these free and fair elections. Meanwhile, talk of the joke that was the recent Afghan election has virtually disappeared from the media.
