Clip: 11/11/2019 | 4m 47s

Bolivia, South America’s poorest country, is politically divided — and currently without a leader.

But his political opponents contend he was a dictator who eventually succumbed to the powers of democracy. Nick Schifrin reports on how Bolivia is facing a government reconstruction.
