    CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Hugo Chavez's body will be preserved and forever displayed inside a glass tomb at a military museum not far from the presidential palace from which he ruled for 14 years, his successor announced Thursday in a Caribbean version of the treatment given Communist revolutionary leaders like Lenin, Mao and Ho Chi Minh.
    Vice President Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela's acting head of state, said Chavez would first lie in state for "at least" seven more days at the museum, which will eventually become his permanent home. It was not clear when exactly he would be moved from the military academy where his body has been since Wednesday.
    A state funeral will be held Friday attended by 33 heads of government, including Cuban President Raul Castro and Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks, a New York Democrat, and former Rep. William Delahunt, a Democrat from Massachusetts, will represent the United States, which Chavez often portrayed as a great global evil even as he sent the country billions of dollars in oil each year.

    1. Why do we send representatives from congress to this funeral? Does their both being democrats have any meaning? At most someone from the state dept. maybe.

    2. He didn't really just send oil, he SOLD it to companies that then sold it to Americans.

    There's a lot of oil there. They don't care about Chavez. But it's another opportunity to make contacts in the oil companies and oil well owners and get us more oil for power.

    Maybe eventually they'll pay someone to shove their hand up his ass and work him like a puppet ... just like Abe Lincoln at Disneyland.

    Biden should show his respects, get kidnapped and have no one pay the ransom. The kidnappers would catch his retardation shoot each other by mistake.
