Portraits of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez sit for sale along a street on the sidelines of a rally in Caracas, Venezuela, Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013. Many credit Chavez with easing their poverty and expanding public services. To them, it does not matter that Venezuela suffers from 20 percent inflation, that the oil-producing nation is often short on cooking oil and sugar, that it has one of the world's highest murder rates, and that the president will not divulge the details of his cancer.
