Caudillos and demagogues

All the world is a stage for Manuel Zelaya, and so everything around him is merely meant to be used as props to enhance his star quality, his celebrity. The idea of quietly leading without much fanfare, self-adulation, self-glorification, or self-pro…motion is an alien concept to caudillos. The idea of not taking credit for something is unthinkable, nonsensical, repulsive to demagogues. It is not in their nature, their DNA. Theirs must always be the only name on the marquee.
