Unfounded Rumor Of The Morning: Vix In Mex?

We've been wondering all morning why, whereas Ken Lewis has been working his ass off batting down rumors of nationalization, we've heard nary a peep from the other candidate for the government's tentacles, Vikram Pandit. Perhaps it's cause he's got his hands tied? We're told that the Citi CEO is in Mexico circa now, apparently meeting with Roberto Hernandez.
Is the sit-down in re: Banamex going back into Mexican hands? (And is this in anticipation of Big C nationalization, since Mexican authorities presumably would not appreciate Banamex to be in (indirect) US government hands?) Or is it a meeting of the minds re: how much baby oil is too much, when one is in pursuit of the perfect tan? You tell us.
