Bernard Henry Levy is interviewed by Argentinean newspaper La Nacion. He is asked if Chavez is left wing or not and here is his answer:

Is Chávez left wing?

-Obivosuly not. How can a man who exercizes personal power, dreams of having power forever, muzzles the media in his country, sits  on a mountain of gold that the population does not take advantage of and who is the ally of Ahmadinejad in the war being fought between democrats and anti-democrats, be left wing? There is a left that thinks that Chávez is family, the turbulent kid of the family. Not me. I am left wing and consider Chávez to be my adversary.

Read the whole thing, it is in Spanish, but worth trying…
