O, RLY?

Carol E. Lee of Politico quotes a White House official who says that Obama's smiling handshake with Hugo didn't really mean anything:

Said Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest of the handshake: “It was good manners, and it was friendly. But it doesn’t signify a significant change or a dramatic change in the relationship between our two countries.”
Elsewhere on Politico...
Hugo Chavez said today that he expects to soon send an ambassador back to Washington. The United States expelled Venezuela's ambassador in September after Chavez, in solidarity with President Evo Morales of Bolivia, expelled the U.S. ambassadors from their countries.
I tend to believe an American official a tad more than Chavez, but we'll see.
