    Vicente Fox joins Bono and Clinton at lecture agency

    Fox joins Bono and Clinton at lecture agency

    Reuters
    Sunday, October 1, 2006; 2:12 PM



    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's departing President Vicente Fox has signed with an exclusive speakers agency that also represents former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Irish rock star Bono, according to the agency's Web site.

    Top earners at the New York-based Harry Walker Agency can charge up to $350,000 every time they impart thoughts at conferences and seminars.

    The agency describes Fox on its site as a "visionary leader." It says the former Coca-Cola executive can speak about "his business-centered approach to the development of Mexico," "surveying the geopolitical landscape," and "bringing the new economy to Latin America."

    Fox leaves government at the end of November. He won office in 2000, ending seven decades of one-party rule in Mexico.

    His administration has carefully managed Mexico's economy but has been criticized for not making sufficient progress against poverty, crime or immigration reform.

    He was dealt a blow on Friday when the U.S. Senate gave final congressional approval to the construction of a 700 mile

    fence along the Mexican border to keep out illegal immigrants.

    Fox's spokesman Ruben Aguilar said he could not confirm the president would be working with the Walker agency.

    "It is true the president is interested in continuing to work on projects related to the poor, to education and the disabled after his government finishes," he said. "Among several possibilities is giving conferences."

    The agency was not immediately available for comment.

    Bill Clinton earned more than $7 million dollars from his global lecture tours in 2005. Bono, the frontman for Irish rock giants U2 and a leading anti-poverty campaigner, titles one of his lectures "A lesson in giving back."

    Fox's wife and former press secretary Marta Sahagun is also represented by the agency.

    What a sick joke.

    Fox leaves Mexico in a near state of civil war over the last election, while Oaxaca is in armed insurrection.

    Quite an accomplishment for a "visionary leader". I wonder how many US colleges and universities are going to pony up $350,000 to hear this great man speak. I'm sure that many US corporations will.

    Gosh, what's there to say.

    It all started here, about 1 minute and forty seconds in.

    After that, a fashion consultant and interior decorator, and here we are.

    Looks like we would have been an item, back in the day, no?

    I was in such a hurry to post that I left out the part about Fox letting the drug gangs take over major Mexican cities like Nuevo Laredo and the one-time vacation destination of Acapulco, along with the mass murder that they've brought with them. Not to mention Fox's plan to rid his country of the "undesireables", the people who "will do jobs even blacks won't do", by sending them to us.

    Oh, yeah, this guy is going to clean up on the lecture circuit, imparting his "thoughts".
