Mexico's President Tries Yet Again to Get the 'United States' Out of 'Mexico'

Mexico's president is making one last attempt to get the "United States" out of Mexico -- at least as far as the country's name is concerned.

The country's formal name is "The United Mexican States," but few people use it.
President Felipe Calderon wants to make it simply "Mexico."

Calderon says the name was adopted in 1824 to imitate the country's northern neighbor, The United States of America.

Calderon said Thursday Mexico doesn't need to emulate anyone.
