Manuel Rosales attempted to become the next president of Venezuela. He had the support of much of the middle class, the upper class, and even some of the lower class, but in the end the populist appeal of Victor Hugo Chavez was just too big of a hurdle. Don’t feel too bad for Manuel, he is still governor of the state of Zulia.
Not only did poor Manuel Rosales lose the election for president, but winner Hugo Chavez’ supporters are trying to knock him out of his post as governor of Zulia. In a faux futuristic recounting of a would be history, this wildly hopeful presidential campaign ad (disguised as a movie trailer) not only dared Venezuelans to vote for change, but dared to sell a bearskin before actually catching the bear.
