China, Tibet, and Taiwan?

NY Times article suggests what is going on in Tibet may influence Taiwan's election. Taiwan's election process is very exciting with Blue, Green, and for a while a Red party. US politics compared to that is pretty tame. DPP is the Green Party, KMT is the Blue party, and the Red Party just hates the guts of the Mr. Chen Shui-bian, the current President of Taiwan. Some people from the US even fly back to Taiwan just to vote.

Panda baiting is the term, that I just learned, of when the DPP attempts to upset China to get a reaction to sway voters at home. China at first played along beautifully, but lately has been attempting to just ignore Taiwan's politics.

Tip - It's a good idea to avoid discussions on Taiwan independence, politics, and such with Taiwanese and Chinese. These are pretty emotional issues.

Me - I try to stay out of it and just be a neutral observer at home.
