Chavez hopes Obama 'forgets about destabilizing countries'

PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL As Barack Obama looks to four more years in the White House, he's been urged by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to focus on domestic problems. During a meeting with ministers, Chavez said Obama should reflect on a "divided" America. He said the U.S. was "socially and economically fractured" and that poverty was growing by the day. SOUNDBITE: VENEZUELAN PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ SAYING (Spanish): "I hope that he reflects, President Obama, I hope. And that he devotes himself to governing his country and forgets about invading peoples and destabilizing countries, etc." Chavez, who was also recently re-elected, is a harsh critic of the U.S. and its leadership. In a surprise move in September he endorsed Obama, saying he'd vote for the president if he had the chance.
