Reuters reported: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez sought to end a diplomatic stand-off with the United States on Tuesday by suggesting it name Bill Clinton, actor Sean Penn or director Oliver Stone as its envoy to Caracas. In the latest flare-up between the ideological foes, Washington withdrew the visa of Venezuelas ambassador last week in retaliation for Chavezs rejection of President Barack Obamas nominated ambassador to Caracas. U.S. diplomat Larry Palmer had criticized Venezuelas government, saying morale in its military was low and there were clear ties between members of the Chavez administration and leftist rebels in neighboring Colombia. In a televised speech late on Tuesday, Venezuelas firebrand president said he had come up with a solution. I hope they name Oliver Stone. Ill suggest a candidate Sean Penn, or (linguist and philosopher Noam) Chomsky. We have a lot of friends there. Bill Clinton! Chavez said.
