ARGENTINA'S PRESIDENT-ELECT IS NO HILLARY CLINTON
Argentina's first lady Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who according to most polls will win Sunday's presidential elections, has been repeatedly described as ``Argentina's Hillary Clinton.'' She's not. Read here why she's no "Hillary," and let us know what you think.
Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald columnist Andres Oppenheimer, author of five best-sellers on Latin American affairs and whose syndicated column appears in 55 major U.S. and Latin American newspapers, comments on the latest events in Latin America and U.S.- Latin American affairs.
