Will Bush's Trip Help Africa?

The Bush administration is earmarking money to Africa. More than has come to Africa in years. Does all this money mean that Africa is getting more attention because of concern over the health, welfare and political stability of the continent?

It is coming at a time when African oil producing nations are increasing their capacity and evangelical Christian groups are focusing their lobbying efforts in Washington to protect threatened African Christians? What might this trip to Africa accomplish? Will it change the economic debate in Africa?
