Zero. Nobody can get more access to Venezuala. The death of Chavez won't change that for some time.
Sad but true, the V.P. (now current President) has very similar views towards the US that Chavez did. The only way much will change is if indeed the opposition is some how voted into power. Keep in mind Chavez was popular with the poorer citizens of Venezuela, the majority of the voters, I believe the opposition will have an uphill battle for control. I hope things don't get crazy down there, and that all people in the country remain safe during this transition.
It would be nice to see more freedom for travel between Venezuela and North America. I'm sure there is way more to the politics that have things as restricted as they are currently. Best of luck to the people of Venezuela and some future progress.
