Not only leftists like him. In latinamerica, Che, Castro and Cuba are seen with reverence for holding their ground against the US.

Also some politicians aspire to be the life-long benevolent (ha!) dictator that Castro was.

I respect that many people in Latin America see him ( and Castro ) as symbols of resistance to U.S. Imperialism, they are like folk heros and i can respect that, but then they were also real people, who make real mistakes and we should learn from them rather than mythologize them.
