The Honduran constitution is written the way it is deliberately. It seeks to avoid the possibility of so called Presidents For Life, like Chavez had made himself - like Hilter made himself (who was first elected democratically). Obama says since Zelaya was elected he should remain president. Using Obama's logic we could never have impeached Nixon. He was elected democratically, too. Trouble was, he broke the law. Same as Zelaya, who is breaking the law trying to install himself as President For Life. Conservatives are right in supporting the Honduran Supreme Court, Honduran Congress and Honduran Military in putting a stop to that, in accordance with the Honduran constitution. To do otherwise is to put Honduras on the path to ending democratic rule.
