Latin America has enjoyed a lengthy period of
economic and political progress, which should be celebrated.
Broadly speaking, the region is in relatively good shape. But
there could be turbulent times ahead caused by an array of
problems, including increasing drug-related violence in Mexico
and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's alliance with
Iran. While Obama will probably devote most of his foreign
policy attention to the Middle East and Asia, he won't be
able to ignore the many challenges in Latin America.
Ambassador Jaime Daremblum is a Hudson Institute Senior Fellow and directs the Center for Latin American Studies.
