Of the various articles that have appeared in English about the South American leaders making peace at the Santo Domingo summit, only this piece in the L.A. Times reported Argentina president Cristina Kirchner's pointed, laugh-inducing rebuke to Uribe, Correa, and Chávez, uttered in the course of rejecting unilateral action and insisting on territorial sovereignty.
[ "We women are accused of being irrational and hysterical sometimes . . . but some of the scenes that we see here show that sometimes we are the most rational," and then added, "In some things we are a little better than some men." ]
[ Siempre nos han acusado a las mujeres de que se nos vuelan los pájaros, deque tenemos cierto grado de histerismo, ironizó. Quiero decirles que algunas escenas que por ahí nos toca ver, nos convierten a las mujeres tal vez en las personas más racionales de este planeta. En algunas cosas somosun poco mejores que algunos hombres". ]
It is probably worth recalling that amid the noise about whether the U.S. isready to have a female president, both Chile and Argentina have women presidents right now.
Here are two articles in Spanish: one about Kirchner, the other about a peace concert being planned by Colombian superstar, Juanes, to take place near the Colombian-Venezuelan border.
