One side benefit of the Colombian hostage rescue: No Alo Presidente!
Noticias 24 reports that Hugo's weekly 4-hours long TV program is "suspended until further notice", due to
Chavez's heavily-booked schedule this upcoming week.Following the Colombian hostage rescue he probably doesn't have much to brag about.
As far as Hugo's schedule goes, the Venezuelan Minister of Communications mentioned that Colombian President Alvaro Uribe is scheduled to visit Venezuela on July 11 and the Petrocaribe summit's scheduled for July 12-13.
Chavez's situation in either visit will be vastly different from what anyone pictured four months ago. Now he's in a sweat, being the big loser in the hostage liberation.
Unless he can come up with a really good powerpoint presentation, he can kiss the Nobel Peace price good-bye. But don't count him out yet. At the current oil prices, he's still got the bucks to carry him through.
