feliz cinco de mayo

I happened upon this video of statements by President Obama and Mexican Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan in honor of Cinco de Mayo. I’ve heard from friends that the news has given the most play to  Obama’s awkward “Cuatro de Cinco” comment. It was definitely an ooops unscripted moment. However, what followed in the comments by both been was, I believe, a fantastic commentary on our two nations, what it means for us to be neighbors, and our shared culture and heritage.
