After less than 24 hours in Mexico, President Barack Obama heads to Trinidad and the Summit of the Americas.

The weekend gathering of leaders from the Western Hemisphere’s democracies will tackle the same issues Obama has dealt with in Mexico, including drug wars, global warming, recession and poverty. But the president’s chief effort will be to simply improve relations with America’s neighbors, many of whom felt ignored during the Iraq-dominated Bush years.

The White House says Obama has no plans to use the summit for a one-on-one chat with Venezuela’s president, Hugo Chavez.
