Hi Rachel,

Thanks for the info-packed post. Since I could hardly find anything on Dilma's visit in the US media, I knew we could count on you to put together a good piece to summarize.

If you'll allow me a little positive spin that puts Dilma's visit into perspective: Remember, President Obama can't even seem to show respect and genuine hospitality to our strongest allies like Great Britain and Israel, whom he has consistently treated with smugness and condescension. So when he seems aloof about Brazil, I'm going to take it with a grain of salt and assume he continues to not represent the position of mainstream America. As for the media, they mostly take their cues from Jay Carney anyway.
