Liberia Election

Linda talks to NPR's Jennifer Ludden about Charles Taylor, the apparent landslide winner of last Saturday's presidential election in Liberia. Taylor trounced twelve other candidates despite his role as the leader of the militia which started Liberia's ruinous seven-year war. Many in the west African nation believe Taylor is the only person strong enough to hold the country together while it tries to recover from the conflict.
