A tiger in the tank

The president has nominated a new Secretary of Commerce:

Carlos Gutierrez is one of America's most respected business leaders. He is a great American success story.
Carlos' family came to America from Cuba when he was a boy. He learned English from a bellhop in a Miami hotel and later became an American citizen. When his family eventually settled in Mexico City, Carlos took his first job for Kellogg as a truck driver, delivering Frosted Flakes to local stores. Ten years after he started he was running the Mexican business. And 15 years after that he was running the entire company. Link

Have I ever mentioned how important the Cuban vote is in Florida electoral politics?
Probably no connection, though.
