Peña Nieto's White House Visit Wasn't the First by a Mexican President-Elect -- PICTURES

November 27, 2012

As important as was Mexico's President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto's visit to the White House Tuesday, it wasn't the first by a Mexican head of state, or soon-to-be head of state, by any means. Below are scenes from during the past decades of Mexican presidents' visits to the White House.
