And more on Honduras

From WSJ:

Honduras Defends Its Democracy

With a great subtitle:
Fidel Castro and Hillary Clinton object.

Well, politics make strange bedfellows, they say. However, I disagree with the last sentence of the article:
The struggle against chavismo has never been about left-right politics. It is about defending the independence of institutions that keep presidents from becoming dictators. This crisis clearly delineates the problem. In failing to come to the aid of checks and balances, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Insulza expose their true colors.
Mrs. Clinton doesn't have any permanent colors, only the camouflage of expedience. Still, she has been jumping into too many random beds too quickly lately. Should take care, methinks.
