Will Voters Give Hugo Chavez All the Power He Wants?

Hosted by

At the UN, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called George Bush "the devil."  He's reached out to Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  On Sunday, voters may given him new powers and extend his influence for a long time to come.  We hear what that could mean for his country, the region and the interests of the United States. Also, protests in Sudan call for execution of a British teacher, and America's hurricane season goes out with a whimper.
