Bolivia’s Morales Set to Ride Pragmatic Populism to Landslide

Unlike elections in neighboring Brazil and Uruguay, Bolivia's presidential race is notably lacking in drama and suspense in the run-up to voting on Oct. 12. Despite some constitutional questions surrounding his candidacy and criticisms over how much power he has amassed, President Evo Morales appears headed for a landslide victory that would make him not only Bolivia's longest-serving president, but the incumbent with the longest tenure in Latin America. That is no mean feat for Bolivia's first indigenous president and the former head of the coca grower's union.
