Hillary Clinton's visit to Mexico

Secretary Clinton is on her way; her first stop will be a work meeting with her counterpart, Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa, immediately followed by a meeting with President Calderon.
All of this is happening in light of some worrisome polls. A recent Gallup poll tells us that Americans´ positive opinion of Mexico has fallen from 74% in 2006 to 51% in 2009, a 23% drop. At this point, Egypt and China are more popular than Mexico, just to put this visit in context.
