President Bush has announced he will be attending the opening ceremonies at the Beijing Olympics. That decision was immediately met with varying reaction.
The president said not attending the opening ceremonies would be an insult to the Chinese people.
Both presidential candidates are weighing in on President Bush's decision. Senator Barack Obama says if he were president, he would not attend unless he saw some progress between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama. Senator John McCain has previously stated he would only attend if China improves its record on human rights and other issues.
What do you think? Should the President of the United States attend the ceremonies? Should China have even been granted the Olympics?
