Horizontalists stand up Tabaré Vázquez

Tabaré Vázquez, Uruguay’s new president is apparently a verticalist. I haven’t the faintest idea what that means, particularly as his predecessor was not a notable drunk, but it sounds like a good thing for a politician to be. Catalonia’s famously horizontalist leader, Pasqual Maragall, has announced that he won’t, after all, be attending the inauguration, and Fidel has decided against another trip. Is there a third way between passant and passed-out?
