Martine,  I feel without knowing that Aristide has gotten very smart and 
cagey with respect to the behemoth up north, the one who finds itself in an 
electoral pickle of its own making. (God does have a sense of humor!)  It is 
not coincidental that Sunday's election went so smoothly and there were no 
OAS or US gov't observers.  I know isolation is frightening and so is going 
head to head with the US.   My guess is that Aristide will deal with the US 
in a way that casual observers will not understand but will be designed to 
say "Yes" to Uncle Sam and then do what must be done.  I don't want to think 
it can't work, but it will take an extraordinary man to pull it off.  I think 
Aristide is extraordinary.
