On my visit to China last month I made a 2 hour TV show with Long Yongtu, China’s WTO negotiator, and 100 university students. The topic was how the Obama presidency would impact US/China economic and political relations. In the course of the show I asked the students for their impression of Obama. The first said, “He is a rock star.” The second that he is a great speaker. The third that he will help bring peace. They all had very positive impressions and were extremely hopeful.
The show aired tonight across China. I am eager to see the emails I get from viewers there. Will pass them along to you when they come in.
