As we noted before President Bush left for his Latin American tour, the White House had high hopes for this trip.
Bush returns today after enduring a week of protests and taunts from Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (video below). As the Washington Post noted, Bush is having a hard time shaking the various problems facing his administration, even when he's out of the country.
The Boston Globe has a column today on Bush's attempt to turn attention to poverty in much of Latin America and the U.S. effort to help alleviate it.
Stay tuned for a report tomorrow from chief White House correspondent Kenneth T. Walsh on how much success Bush had in this effort.
