Congratulations, President Chinchilla!

(pic from Phydeaux Speaks, who's actually there, warm and happy)
That would be Laura Chinchilla, elected as Costa Rica's first female President on Sunday.
I'm guessing that there are a number of diplomats at the state department working on being able to say "President Chinchilla" with a straight face.
(I meant to post this yesterday, but I got...umm...distracted.)

Woo hoo!

I'm pleased to be living in a country that was willing and able to elect a woman to the office of President. (also, and I bet you know this but, it's pronounced "chin-CHEE-ya").

Oh, also, with Laura's election, Costa Rica's VP will be Lieberman. Luis Lieberman.
