Pragmatic Socialist Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez was elected to a third term Sunday in a national parliamentary vote that proved both a runaway and a cliffhanger.

He can be found there every day, a 45-year-old executive in a crisp shirt and tie, wool slacks cinched around a stocky waistline. The very picture, as he likes to say, of a "worthwhile citizen."
