Chavez Endorses Obama

Probably not what the President needs right now

|

President Obama secured an endorsement from Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez on Sunday, in a move that may garner groans from the White House and the Obama campaign.

"I hope this doesn't harm Obama, but if I was from the United States, I'd vote for Obama," Chavez said, according to Reuters.

Chavez, who is facing his own reelection fight and has been used by Republicans to attack Obama in recent months, said that if Obama were from Venezuela he would vote for him, as well.
