President Lula

Zakaria's interview with President Lula, was interesting for many reasons. Hear what Lula says about Obama's inauguration.

President Lula "I told my people, during my inauguration address - I do not have the right to make mistakes, I cannot afford to fail". I believe that God put Obama there for a reason - I told him that he cannot afford to fail."

Undoubtedly, Lula has come a long way since his days as a Machine Operator, in a factory. His comments regarding democracy, socialism and the role of emerging industrialized nations - were insightful and well presented. Undoubtedly, many will disagree with his position on U.S relations with Venezuela & Cuba - as well as the role which emerging nations should play, in global affairs.

Still, it's important to understand different perspectives of World Leaders, especially those from nations like Brazil.
