The Post-Uribe Era begins to emerge

Whatever happens in Colombia, I hope the transition is peaceful and, if Santos is elected, he proves not to be the Medvedev to Uribe’s Putin.

Peaceful transition between elected officials is a sign of a healthy state, and while Fuller discussed the need for autocratic/stable leadership during times of crisis, Santos’ ability (if elected) to move beyond the Uribe era and bring Colombia into the first stages of a post-FARC existence, while not ruining the foundations laid during Uribe’s term…there is such potential and danger there.
