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.
