VENEZUELA : Capriles Radonski Easily Wins Chance To Face Chavez.

      Even with some intimidation from Chavistas...nearly 3 million voters turned out...and selected Miranda governor Henrique Capriles Radonski, 39...to face current President Hugo Chavez in October.
      The opposition was finally unified...as Capriles garnered 62% of the primary vote.
      Despite his youth...Capriles is an experienced politician...the grandson of Polish Jews who fled the Nazis...and he has vowed to keep many of Chavez's social programs.
      But Capriles also vows to fight annual 26% inflation, rampant crime and unemployment... that Chavez has failed to remedy in his nearly 13 years.
