Wow! Yesterday it was hugs from Maria Shriver, and today it's cuddles from Maria's maid! Ha, ha, just kidding! She was there to talk about some "Merida Initiative" thingy, but everybody avoiding saying what, exactly, that is during the dizzyingly meaningless press conference on the way over there on the plane. It has something to do with giving Mexico money for something to do with drugs, and it looks like it ain't happening under Condi's watch. "We are doing things together with Mexico, things together with Mexico and Canada...," Condi stated, and I guess that sums it up better than anything.
But they did sign an agreement to cooperate during natural disasters! Another triumph for Condi!
