Obama, Chavez Shake Hands at Summit of the Americas

It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood, a wonderful day in the neighborhood, a wonderful day in the neighborhood. Would you be my neighbor?

From Fox News:

Photos released by the Venezuelan government show Obama clasping Chavez’s hand and smiling broadly, and Venezuela quoted Chavez as saying, “I’d like to be your friend,” while noting that he shook President Bush’s hand eight years ago with the same hand. Obama reportedly expressed thanks.

A senior White House official said the encounter came before the summit’s opening ceremonies during a meeting with the heads of state. Obama talked to many of the 25 or so leaders who were there at the time. At one point, he walked across the room and introduced himself to Chavez.

If you go to the link and read the rest of the article you’ll see a picture of them shaking hands like “brothers in the hood” How nice.
