i'm not sure what to make of chavez. he seemed a bit eccentric but was no where near the levels of crazy dictators like the north korean guy.
I would not call him a dictator. I think they had many elections in Venezuela during his ruling. If I am not mistaken, they had one in 2012 as well.

(Unless the "dictator" part only went to the Korean guy. )
Nah he wasnt a dictator, although I have concerns about any leader who pushed through changes to the law to ensure he could rule indefinitely, even if that rule came with democratic legitimacy, so Id put him in a category with Putin in that respect.
