President Hugo Chavez says he has a new book for President Barack Obama: "What Is to be Done?" by communist Vladimir Lenin, founder of the Soviet state.As with the previous book, I have a hunch Obama's already got this one in his library.
Chavez says he'll "give it to Obama at the next meeting."
"What Is to be Done?" is Lenin's political treatise on the role of intellectuals and the proletariat in promoting revolution, written more than a decade before he led the Bolshevik takeover of Russia in 1917.
Chavez gave Obama a copy of "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent" by Eduardo Galeano at an April summit.

Hugo's Next Book for Obama
Maybe these two ought to start their own little book of the month club.
