Yao’s Philosophy Helps Obama With Diplomacy

Ming doesn’t need to play hoops to help U.S.-China relations; he just has to open his mouth: “Besides having a meet-and-greet with the WNBA champion Detroit Shock at the White House yesterday, Obama also quoted Yao Ming when he addressed the  first China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue. Talking about the importance of the two nations cooperating, Obama said, ‘I have learned from the words of Yao Ming, who said, ‘No matter whether you are new or an old team member, you need time to adjust to one another.’ Well, through the constructive meetings that we’ve already had, and through this dialogue, I’m confident that we will meet Yao’s standard.”‘

    Obama: “Okay Yao, we’re gonna pull troops out of Iraq now.”
    Yao: “Awww don’t be a baby!”
    Obama: “My god, such wisdom! Alright we’ll leave them in.”
