    Worse than the fact that most citizens of the US don't know who Jean Chretien is, is that most of us don't know who Vicente Fox is either.
    Why is it worse to be ignorant about the government of Mexico than of Canada?
    It is a much larger (in population) neighbor of the United States. It is a smaller trade partner, I think, but very culturally important because of the very many recent, and not so recent, Mexican immigrants.
    Yes, but the border with Canada is much larger and they keep sending
    their cold fronts down on us ;-)

    The US and Canada are also jointly responsible for the stewardship of
    4 out of 5 of the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes basin accounts for 18%
    of the fresh water surface area in the world.

    As we learned recently, the Canadian and U.S. electric grids are
    heavily intertwined. So is the NHL.

    I think it's hard to argue which country is more important. Politics
    in both countries can significantly impact us. They are, however,
    often important for different reasons. It might also come down to
    which part of the country you live in. Politics in Mexico is probably
    more important to Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California than it
    is to Alaska, Washington, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin,
    Michigan, Illinois, etc, etc. Although I agree that there are a
    significant number of Mexican immigrants in many of these states too.
