Ironic, Isn't It?
Right there, on the first page of Granma, there it was: Castro's letter of praise and congratulations to his protégé in Caracas for being elected president.
That's a feeling Fidel never knew in his lifetime since he lied, bullied and murdered his way into power. Maybe that's what he meant by: "I will be brief so that my emotions do not betray me." The betraying emotion being Jealousy.
Meanwhile the young in Cuba, scratched their heads and wondered to themselves : "They get to have elections to pick their presidents in Venezuela? Wow! Imagine that!"
