Nestor Kirchner is the former President of Argentina. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is the current President of Argentina. Julio Cobos is the current Vice President of Argentina. The official residence of the President of Argentina is known as the Pink House.
Julio Cobos was suggested for the Vice Presidency by the outgoing President to the incoming President. Since July 27th however, the Vice President has not spoken in person or on the phone with the President. Instead, the former President jokes that the current President asks him every morning to identify which Vice President he stuck her with today? According to a spokesman for the Argentine Agrarian Foundation, the trouble all started because of the "intolerant and authoritarian style of the Kirchners."
President de Kirchner, it seems, is a bit put off by the fact that on the 17th of July, the Vice President cast the deciding vote against her four-month-long attempt to raise taxes on farm exports. That vote made the 53-year-old former governor of Mendoza Province an instant hero to an overwhelming majority of ordinary Argentinians. Such a hero, in fact, that opinion polls now suggest that more than 80 percent of the citizenry rejects the Presidents' attempt to force the resignation of the Vice President. "My idea is to continue working in a way that allows me to be true to my conventions and my principles," he offered to the Argentinian Press.
When queried about his political future, Cobos stated, "I have a committment until 2011, and then we will see what my destiny is in politics."
