The American Left: Add Tabare Vazquez to the list that already includes Brazil's Silvio de Lula, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Argentina's Nestor Kirchner. Vazquez was sworn in as the first left-wing president in Uruguay's history, joining five other American nations who've recently shifted power to the left.

Are we next?

Probably not. A new Harris poll finds that most Americans--that's United Statesians--are clueless about the definitions of left and right: 37% of those polled think liberals oppose gun control, 27% think righties support affirmative actions, and 29% think liberals "oppose moral values."
