Amanpour: Hugo Chavez had cult following

Christiane Amanpour and Larry King discuss how Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will be remembered in his country and globally. He died on Tuesday after a long battle against cancer.

King interviewed Chavez in 2009 for his CNN show "Larry King Live," and recalls speaking to Chavez in English before they began, but the president used an interpretor during the taping. "I thought that was a little strange," says King, who found Chavez fascinating. As Anderson Cooper points out, perhaps that was to benefit his target audience – the citizens of Venezuela.

"He had a manner about him that was effusive," King says. "You couldn't help but like him...I found him incredibly interesting."
