The Death and Legacy of Hugo ChávezDownload audio (MP3)
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez died Tuesday at the age of 58, after a battle with cancer. We'll discuss the controversial leader's career and look at what lies ahead for Venezuela, the fourth-largest oil supplier to the United States and, under Chávez, a U.S. adversary. We will also consider the likely successor to Chávez and discuss whether his socialist and revolutionary agendas will continue after his death.
