Hillary Clinton's visit to Mexico

Guess what? Secretary Clinton will be announcing who President Obama will be nominating as the next U.S. ambassador to Mexico. However even though they may announce today, don’t expect this confirmation to happen immediately. Right now there are more than 60 US embassies around the world without ambassadors, including the EU and China. But since Mexico is clearly moving up in the foreign policy priority list of the Obama administration, we can expect there will be pressure to get this candidate confirmed as soon as possible.
