Yesterday was the first of presumably many meetings between Mexico’s President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto and recently re-elected President Barack Obama in Washington, DC. In a few days Vice President Joe Biden will lead a delegation, along with Ambassador Tony Wayne, Chief Counterterrorism Advisor John Brennan, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, and Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta Jacobson, to attend Peña Nieto’s December 1 inauguration. Last night I spoke with Ray Suarez of PBS Newshour and Michael Shifter of the Inter-American Dialogue on the current state of bilateral relations and the big issues going forward.
