2/10    I like Woz, and I like iWoz, but let me tell ya, no one worships
        him because he has the charisma of an highly functioning

        he's better looking and does an amazing job promoting himself

North, a former lieutenant colonel in the US Marines, was in the Nicaraguan capital on Monday to give his backing to the ruling Liberal Party's conservative candidate, Jose Rizo. North said he was worried by opinion polls that show his former enemy Daniel Ortega, who led the left-wing Sandinista government during the 1980s civil war against Contra rebels, could bounce back to power in the November 5 election. "I think that ought to have everyone concerned," North told Reuters before meeting Rizo at a luxury hotel in Managua. "It's good to be back," he said when greeting the candidate, describing him as an "old friend." North was at the center of the scheme in the 1980s to support Contra rebels in Nicaragua with the funds from secret arms sales to Iran. Ronald Reagan , but North's conviction for his part in the scheme was eventually overturned. Two decades later, he is still controversial in Nicaragua. Sandinista loyalists see him as a symbol of US aggression in a war that killed an estimated 30,000 people and wrecked Nicaragua's economy, while others say he is a hero. risked his political future for Nicaragua," Rizo said on Monday. "It's shameful that this man is being welcomed when we know what he represents," said Carlos Mejia, the vice presidential candidate for a Sandinista splinter group. Ortega came to power in a 1979 revolution that ended a US-backed dictatorship. He ruled through the 1980s, but was voted out in 1990 after years of devastating civil war. This year's election is his third attempt to regain power and recent polls show him with a chance of seizing victory in the first round, helped by a divided conservative vote between two candidates. "The anti-American leftists in Latin America are using elections -- not revolutions or military coups -- to take and then solidify power. It's a tactic that seems to have escaped the striped-pants set in our State Department," he said in an October 9 editorial in the Washington Times. "Hopefully, the most recent polls will wake up Washington before it's too late," he said. US Ambassador Paul Trivelli, who favors Rizo's conservative rival Eduardo Montealegre, said North was a private citizen and not speaking for Washington. Rizo briefly used North's editorial in a TV campaign ad, but denied on Monday receiving campaign support from North or any other foreigner.
