Title - For Brazil, little change with Hillary

Article in business-oriented Valor Economico (12-02) from Rio de
Janeiro based Valor reporter, Francisco Goes: "The nomination of
Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State was well received by
Brazilian diplomats and by specialists in international relations.
For a majority of them, however, the relationship of the US and
Brazil will not change much. Brazilian Chancellor Celso Amorim asks
that Hillary work together to reinforce partnerships in the area of
ethanol, Haiti, Africa and proposed a meeting in the beginning of
2009. . . . He said that he is convinced that the two countries will
be able to deepen their bilateral relationship, reinforce
multilateralism and accelerate other partnerships. . . . According
to Rubens Barbosa, former Brazilian Ambassador [USA, UK], the choice
of Hillary Clinton will not represent significant changes for
Brazil, because Latin America represents a low priority for the U.S.
Department of State . . . the fire will continue to be in Iraq, the
war, the Middle East, terrorism . . . Luiz Felipe Lampreia, former
Chancellor in the Fernando Henrique Cardoso government disagreed
with Barbosa. I do not share the pessimism of Barbosa . . . Brazil
comes affirming itself as a country with its own personality
separating itself from the image of Latin America . . . Brazil has
everything to enter the new group that will succeed the G8."
