4. You bet, Judi. It's been a good week for democracy.

What a difference from 40 years ago - when the Argentine dictatorship helped install the infamous Luis García Meza. Or from just last year, when Macri colluded in the coup.



The last Argentine dictator, Reynaldo Bignone, and a bagful of Bolivian generals (one carrying jewelry and cocaine dime bags) - as seen by the late cartoonist Andrés Cascioli in a 1982 cover of the satirical bi-weekly Humór.

The dictatorship's ties to Bolivia's narco-regime (which yielded to elections that year) was well known in Argentina, and contributed to its own downfall.
