26. It's a Boligarchy. A corrupt mess.

I wouldn't be surprised if Maduro is overthrown--not from the right, but by Chavez's old bestie buddy, Diosdado Cabello.

This completely imagined scenario ensures that the Commandante's Legacy remains intact, Cuba stays happy, and someone with a brain--and perhaps a bit more pragmatism-- would be running the corrupt show; perhaps reining in the worst of the corruption with the Army as an enforcement tool.

Diosdado can wear the uniform, too--Maduro can't. And Diosdado has lots of pictures of himself with Chavez, when they were both younger, more vital coup plotters. That always goes over well with the washed and unwashed masses.

It could happen.....!
