Chavez, Fidel and Latin American Leadership Hugo Chavez went to Havana today, where he was met at the airport by Raúl Castro, the first time Raúl had appeared in public since Fidel Castro gave him temporary custody of the reins of power in Cuba.

Journalist Phil Davison reports on the Chavez visit and what it means for leftist leadership in Latin America.
