Hello everyone,

Hillary Clinton is in Mexico today, pledging support for Mexico's strategy to combat violent drug gangs. The turf war in Northern Mexico is threatening to spill over into the United States and has the Obama administration worried. We'll take you live to Mexico where Jill Dougherty is following the U.S. Secretary of State's South of the border trip.

And what would an Idesk show be without our daily dose of congressional testimony on the state of the economy? If it's not Fed chief Ben Bernanke, it's Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. Today: Geithner... again! He'll be talking about his toxic asset plan and asking Congress for more power to manage banks on the verge of collapse. We'll take you live to D.C.

Speaking of appearing a lot on TV, we'll be chatting with Bill Schneider on whether Americans are starting to think President Obama runs the risk of diluting his message by becoming too familiar and appearing too often on our television screens. 60 minutes, primetime news conferences, the Jay Leno show, and today a town hall meeting... Give us your thoughts in today's Idesk poll.

Also on tap: we'll be taking you live to the Pentagon, Pakistan and North Dakota with a final stop at Neverland Ranch, or at least what the abandoned Michael Jackson home used to contain. Many items are up for auctions, but the former King of Pop says he is suing to stop the sale. A judge will make a final decisions soon. The drama continues!

See you on TV,
