Benjamin A Shobert: Obama’s Collision Course With China

From the Asia Times Online:

In the past several weeks, two Congressional Commissions – the Congressional-Executive Commission on China () and the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission () – have submitted reports on China that are likely to serve as indicators of what we may expect from an administration. Given the state of the American economy, Obama’s direct comments about China have been limited, and usually presented as secondary, to other domestic priorities.

One of the president-elect’s greatest strengths is an ability to be diffuse until he needs to take a public position, which allows others to project onto him their own agendas and thoughts; this is perhaps nowhere more visible than in his policy positions towards US-China relations.
