LatAm - A Community of Democracies

From Mexidata:

Latin America's embrace of democracy represents a profound shift in political culture that bodes well for the region's future, despite the serious challenges ahead, according to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Speaking at an April 19 media roundtable in Chicago, the secretary noted that since the 1980s, the Western Hemisphere has transformed itself from a region prone to military coups into a community of democratic nations, excepting only Cuba.
