HERE'S some unsolicited advice for Mexico's former president Vicente Fox: When you write an autobiography in which you lambaste your political predecessors as "kleptopresidents" -- i.e., thieving fat cats who gorged themselves silly at the public trough -- it's best not to publish it shortly after appearing with your wife in a magazine photo spread featuring your lavish, multimillion-dollar ranch estate.

President Vicente Fox has rehired the Texas PR man and political consultant who quietly helped engineer his election victory in 2000. This time, though, he wants Rob Allyn & Co. to put the brakes on what many Mexicans see as growing anti-immigration, anti-Mexican sentiment in the United States. Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would add 700 miles of border fencing and make illegal immigration a felony. Fox denounced the measure as shameful.

On Feb. 22, John McCain defeated George W. Bush in the Michigan and Arizona primaries, stunning the Republican establishment. Three days later, Texas businessman and Bush backer Sam Wyly, under a group he formed called Republicans for Clean Air, bought more than $2 million worth of TV ads nationwide lambasting McCain and praising Bush. Wyly had plenty of cash. On the same day as the Michigan upset, he had sold off Sterling Commerce, a business software company, for $3.9 billion.

The latter ad campaign, costing more than $2 million, touts Bush's environmental record and bashes that of McCain.

When President George W. Bush visits Mexican President Vicente Fox Feb. 16, he will see a familiar face in the group that greets him at Fox's ranch in San Cristobal, Guanajuato. Juan Hernandez, appointed by Fox to head the presidential Office for Mexicans Living Abroad, introduced Fox to Bush in 1996. Then, the two presidents were governors. Hernandez, who was teaching Mexican literature at the University of Texas, Dallas, had invited Fox to speak at the university's new Center for U.S.
