President Fernando de la Rua resigned Thursday as tens of thousands of Argentines defied a state of siege he had declared less than 24 hours earlier when violence tore through the recession-ravaged country. De la Rua stepped down after opposition legislators in the Peronist party declined his offer to form a government of national unity, the president's last hope of holding on to power after two days of rioting that shook many of the nation's largest cities.

The president of Argentina speaks several languages. He is a published author. By all accounts, he is an intelligent and alert man, as well-educated as any leader in this country's history. These days, however, the popular image of Fernando de la Rua is of a man asleep at the wheel. Members of his own party have disowned him. In public, he is greeted by shouts of "Useless!" from some of the countless Argentines who blame him for the country's precipitous decline.
