Thread Name: american politics is a joke
Subject: RE: american politics is a joke
From China, most of the Chinese people I've talked with are Gore supporters. They see "Bush Jr." as an inexperienced son of a rich former president who is likely to muck up relations between the U.S. and China. On the level I am , we don't talk about exporting missle technology or anything like that. Mostly I talk to other teachers at the school where I work', or meet on the buses or trains. Chinese people are very convivial, but nobody told me the results of the election until I returned home after a five day vacation. I think that they felt it would be embarassing for me to talk about it. For years, we have been saying that it would be great if there was a box on the ballot for "Nobody", and this year, THANK YOU JESUS! Nobody won! Seth from China
