It was reported earlier this week that Hugo Chavez was not in good health, and it seems he has succumbed to his sickness. He was 58. Chavez was battling cancer, but before that many remember him for his battles with the United States. He was an outspoken Socialist, and was very critical of America. He served as the leader of Venezuela for more than 14 years, and his people were polarized by him, according to the Associated Press.
