Politics, at some level, is theater, and last week, Bolivia's controversial new president, Evo Morales, made the most of it. Donning a white hard hat from Bolivia's state-owned energy company, Morales took center stage at a natural gas field, declaring in a nationally televised address, "The pillaging of our resources by transnational companies is over.
