Cindy snuggles with hugo
Potential U.S. Senate candidate Cindy Sheehan snuggles up to one of the biggest threats to the United States - hugo chávez. The AP cut line for the photo is:
In this photo released by Venezuela's Miraflores Press, Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez embraces visiting U.S. peace activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, during his national broadcast 'Hello President' in Caracas, Venezuela, Sunday, Jan. 29, 2006. Chavez said Sheehan told him that 'soon, in Holy Week, she is going to put up her tent again in front of Mr. Danger's ranch,' referring to U.S. President George W. Bush. Sheehan gained international notoriety last year when she set up a protest camp near Bush's Texas ranch. (AP Photo/Miraflores Press, Francisco Batista)

Gateway Pundit asks if Cindy is the new face of the Democratic Party, and reports that hugo may come to Cindy's "Holy Week" demonstration and pitch a tent, too.
If you want to know more about Cindy's run for the Senate, her site is now up.
Update - Wall Street Cafe has the story of another woman in hugo's life - the wife of a Puerto Rican terrorist.
