Ousted Honduran president Zelaya: wily leftist or buffoon?

Manuel Zelaya grew up in a wealthy landowning family, dropped out of college but went on to witness his nation's grinding poverty firsthand in the aftermath of Hurricane Mitch and became Honduras' president by one of the slimmest margins in Honduran history. He's pals with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega and he's sung ballads about drug traffickers with the Grammy-winning Los Tigres del Norte. Some even question his sanity.
