A magia de Lula

A Economist de amanhã traz uma grande entrevista a Lula da Silva que vale a pena ler. E um editorial - The Magic of Lula - bem interessante.
Eis os dois últimos parágrafos:

On taking office, Lula offered himself as a bridge between two worlds, between the Davos crowd of business types and the World Social Forum of social and environmental activists. He can still command influence in both of these worlds. In Britain this week he intends to push for compromise in the Doha round of world trade talks. Brazil's quiet diplomacy may yet persuade Bolivia's socialist president, Evo Morales, to follow the path of democracy and pragmatism rather than the example of Mr Chávez. To do all this, however, Brazil must lead by example—reforming its economy and helping its legions of poor people by winning the political argument and playing by the rules, not resorting to bribery and the quick fix.
Lula is not just a charismatic politician but also, it seems, a lucky one. He promised clean government, presided over a corruption scandal, and yet still looks capable of winning a second chance. He has the potential to become one of Latin America's most remarkable democratic politicians. But the greater part of his work still lies ahead of him.
