Argentina’s Leadership Crisis

It's been a rough six months for Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. The Argentine president assumed power in December 2007, replacing her husband, Nestor, who is broadly credited with expanding the influence of the country's presidency. The honeymoon didn't last long. Sky-high inflation and unpopular agricultural policies prompted three rounds of strikes in as many months by Argentine farmers—strikes which, experts say, Cristina has proved ill equipped to confront.
