It doesn't matter what one thinks of the PT's government or of Dilma. They might be some of the most hated people in the universe. No serious democracy is sustainable when it's possible to remove the president from office like this.

So it's surprising to learn that his signature goal is the elimination of poverty. "By the end of the decade," he tells me, "we want to have closed the gap in income between rich and poor."
