This week’s agenda: killings in Mexico, health care, 7 years in Iraq, Clinton in Russia

The World

It’s Monday, which means that we’re joined by Marcus Mabry, international business editor for The New York Times, to look at what’s ahead this week.

Brutal killings in Mexico continued over the weekend and drew fresh outrage from U.S. officials. President Obama is delaying a trip to Indonesia in order to stay in D.C. to help push his health care agenda, which he hopes to see passed this week. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) will unveil his finance reform bill. Friday will mark seven years that we’ve been at war in Iraq, and the Iraqi people continue waiting for results from their national elections. And Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visits Moscow to talk about Middle East peace and nukes. All that and we’ll hear about Marcus’s personal agenda.
