Vicente Fox, former President of Mexico, is now represented by the Harry Walker agency, which represents Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Freakonomics author Steven Levitt, and a cast of thousands. Here`s his bio.
Vicente Fox

President of Mexico, 2000-2006

A visionary leader with a deep understanding of the economic and social challenges facing Latin America, President Vicente Fox is one of the world’s most important voices on the contemporary geo-political landscape and the role of business in the developing world.

I could go on about how they give him too much credit for success in turning Mexico`s economy around, but what really want to know is this—what`s his immigration status? How come Fox, a failed ex-President of Mexico, is allowed to take jobs from native-born failed ex-presidents like Bill Clinton, or failed vice-presidents like Al Gore, who couldn`t steal enough votes to become a failed President.

Soon George Bush will be a failed ex-President, represented by a speakers agency—how`s he going to feel if he`s looking for a speaking engagement and finds that a Mexican took his job?

But they say it helps to laugh, so if that happens to President Bush, I`ll laugh really, really, hard.
