CARACAS (Reuters) - Anti-U.S. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez predicted on Sunday the "black man" will win the U.S. presidential race and offered to hold talks with him to improve ties between the superpower and one its biggest oil suppliers.
Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee who would be the first black U.S. president if he wins Tuesday's election, said this year he would be open to dialogue with leaders like Chavez -- a remark that was seized on by Republicans as naive.
McCain, who trails Obama in polls, has labeled Chavez a dictator.
Chavez, a socialist who has mocked President George W. Bush and calls ex-Cuban leader Fidel Castro his mentor, has said there is an inevitable clash between U.S. and Venezuelan interests, although he has at times offered to ease bilateral tensions.
"We are not asking him to be a revolutionary, to be a socialist -- no," Chavez said at a political rally. We just want the black man who is about to be the U.S. president to have enough stature for the times the world is living through.
"I send an overture to the black man, from us here, who are of Indigenous, black, Caribbean, South American race," he said.
"I am ready to sit down and talk ... I hope we can, and I hope we can enter a new stage," he said later at another rally.

I can’t wait for this to be over.....
this is sick.
But not the white part?
Nice to know that Chavez wants to be the head socialist in the Western Hemisphere with his borderline racist, belittling rant about meeting his fellow socialist brother 0bama.
We’re going to have a fun four years if 0bama wins.
Let’s just hope McCain pulls the upset and this a$$clown, Marxists and terrorists everywhere lose.
How about we just castrate Chavez and send him to live with his buddies the Castro bros. in Cuba?
Venezuela would be much better off.
This time Linda Chavez has gone too far.
What he meant to say was “THAT black man.”
so what’s 0bambi going to say now.?...film at 11....
Chavez is a lot less cool.
Chavez = marxist racist
ergo, Chavez = Obama
Yet another exquisitely useful reason to vote for Mac.
