This week, Latin Pulse focuses on Honduras. With the recent trip of Honduran President Porfirio "Pepe" Lobo to Washington, D.C., the question remains whether the country has rehabilitated its diplomatic image after the controversial coup of 2009. Several experts add their analysis of the situation between Washington and Honduras now and how the coup factors into Honduras' relationships throughout Latin America. Beyond the meeting between Lobo and U.S. President Barack Obama, the program also features news about presidential candidate Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, and his solution to Mexico's problems fighting the drug war.
