I know next to nothing about this character, and would like to learn. As I understand it he's a Marxist and a populist who is pretty popular with the poor.

He certainly is making a strong PR ploy; first it was offering cheap fuel oil to US poor and now he's the only head of state I'm aware of who has offered assistance to hurricane victims.

A lot of people seem to despise him, both here and in the region, but what's he all about? I could google him, but I'm curious about people's opinions here.
